    What are these? A Guy gave them to me. He had lots of ee's and silkies so I was thinking ee X Silkie mix? He said they dad might be a silkie. Also, if these are eeXsilkies do they lay like ee's or silkies? thank you

    I'm going back to his farm tomorrow. could someone please tell me how to tell a real EE? thanks


    This is the first one: 5-6 months and has green legs.

    They are probably EE/Silkie mixes, and they all look like pullets as well. As far as whether they lay like EEs or Silkies, I have no clue. But I love how Silkie mixes are so adorable! [​IMG]

    gave me one egg about 3 weeks ago, and none since...

    Yours look like silkie/EE mixes....as to what they will lay is anyones guess...please come back and tell us!
    The mixed breeds are always so interesting and beautiful.

    a real EE? hmm, good one..."MY" EE's have green legs...and tufts on the cheeks...
