    easter eggers mixed with something feather footed. Quite possible they'll lay some shade of green eggs, esp if they have pea combs. They look very pretty, esp the lighter splash hen.

    dont know about egg colore but they look mixed a splash and the one in the back appears to be a blue. i'm guessing the splash is part brahma and the one in the back is hard to tell

    thank you for the thoughts.....we haven't had eggs yet from them (we think!) They are so beautiful to watch. The darker one, Blue, is really quiet a heavy bird...and loves to cuddle.

    The light splash one looks like a Americana crossed with a feather footed breed and the dark blue one I'm not sure about.[​IMG]

    They look like Ameraucana/Cochin crosses, both pullets. [​IMG]

    Quote:x2 And from what I can tell, they are probably about 4 months or so, so it will be a while before you get eggs from them.
