    We have this blue hen- some type of bantam, she's probably 8-9 months old, has 5 toes each foot, lays a pink colored egg.

    The rooster with her is also some type of bantam and probably 7-8 months old, just started crowing mid Nov 2009.

    Any idea what breed(s) they might be?

    thanks, we found both on craig's list in Nov 09 but weren't sure exactly which breed they might be. It was interesting watching the rooster learn to crow, many times he opend up and nothing came out!

    Quote:Bantam EEs. If the hen lays pink eggs, she is not an ameraucana even if she looks like it. They only lay blue or greenish blue.

    Very nice chickens though, I have bantam EEs and love them. I like the color on your rooster!
