    If she has green legs, probably an EE (one of my favorites.) It looks like she has a pea comb, if so you have an excellent chance of getting blue or green eggs. [​IMG]

    I guess "a run of the mill mix" is a slang, right? What does that mean? Does it mean is like a mutt in the dog world?

    Some of the eggs we get from our EEs :)

    Also EEs are mixes anyway. We don't like to say Mutt here. :p WE say Barnyard mix. Sounds better lol.

    Hahaha, ok.. Is mutt offensive? [​IMG] If it was not "politically correct" (sorry for that)... I lack slang and cultural knowledge of the American ways.

    I am fully Puertorican and just happen to know English.

    Those eggs are just gorgeous, and soooooo different from what I get from my English hens... I hope to get nice eggs from this cutie and much bigger eggs than what I get now... I really don't mind the colors. Thanks a bunch for the pic and the info.

    No it's not offensive :lol:

    Mixed breed is usually what people say. Some people may take offence to mutt, but I don't. They lay as nice of an egg as any purebred, and can often be prettier!
