    Then I have this hen I bought. She has five toes, and I was told she is a EE, but then I was told EE's dont have 5 toes.

    Partridge Rocks maybe? Your last bird could be an EE. They're pretty much a mixed breed who lays colored eggs. I had a Silkie mix EE, she had 5 toes, a crest and feathered legs- she laid pretty blue eggs and was a great momma!
