    I'm hoping they both are actual Easter Eggers. Just let me know your opinions and thanks in advance.

    I have another hen I haven't gotten any pics of yet she is broody over a clutch of 12 I'm just waiting on her to come off the nest today so I can get a pic.

    Here's a egg she rolled out of her nest twice so I went ahead and removed it. It's somewhere between light green and olive from what I can tell

    It’s more blue-green than olive.

    Your hen is definitely an Easter Egger your cock might be as well. Where did you get him?

    They came with a property I just bought they were 8 game cocks as well but they came back for those and gave me the two hens and the roo. Really wanna start hatching EEs to sell at our local stock market in a couple years once I've got a good sized flock established. Gonna get some barred rocks to start breeding by there selves too but that's for another day lol

    If you want to hatch EEs you are going to need a true Ameraucana or Araucana rooster to put over your hens.
