With my birds
Long ago where I got them got their chicks from cackle.
About 5 or 6 years ago I got them from a place that ordered from Estes (spelling ?) Theres would qualify as EEs in your opinion. But if you know what they needed to be and picked through them you could get birds that didn't have any traits to eliminate them from their SOP. Mostly all I could get were BBS though. Never had one that didn't lay a true blue egg from there either.
Interesting! I wish my feed stores were like that.

How did you get these wonderful fibro guys? It's awesome!
Thank you very much! I breed one of my ayam cemani roosters with some of my araucana hens and this was the result. My pullets lay every time different shade eggs. Some times are more dark and some other more light, almost white. Only the fibromelanistic hens have this ability. They are very friendly and social. All parts of their body are total black. I think it is one of the most interesting araucana mixes. Anyone who has these breeds I suggest to do a test and will not regret it 😉

My MTHealthy “Ameruacanas” (clear EEs from the start) are growing up so quickly! Jellybean has laid her 6th blue egg (in a row!) today!

so those of you finding out your birds are actually EEs, don’t feel discouraged. EEs are way better IMO. With amazing personality, unique patterns, and a wider variety of egg colors :love
