Hi, bought what was supposedly a strait run of easter eggers a few months ago at my local tractor supply. From what I’ve been reading about we’d and now seeing 3 hens laying brown eggs, I’m wondering what breed of chickens I have.
Thanks 😊

Well not Easter Eggers anyway!:)
First one looks like a black sex link
Second one a sapphire gem
Third one is one of the leghorn hybrids
Fourth one looks like a brown leghorn (looks like white earlobes in the photo).
This one should lay white eggs.
If you are getting 4 brown eggs from these 4 ladies, then the last one is a Welsummer.

Wow! Thank you so much! I’m really floored that they sold a mix of breeds like this and called them easter eggers. I’ve done all this reading about the eggers and know nothing about these breeds now!

TSC is quite famous for mixing up the breeds in different bins! Honestly you are lucky you got all pullets.😊

If you check out "hoover's hatchery" where Tractor supply gets chicks, you'll see your selection of olive eggers, or "Prairie bluebell" I believe...actually, I think "olive eggers" based on single combs...but colors are similar to bluebells (shown)
