    I have an Easter Egger rooster and a Rhode Island Red rooster and 22 hens and want to sell chicks. The hens consist of 3 New Hampshire reds, 3 Rhode Island reds, 1 barred rock, 1 Jersey giant, 1 white rock, 2 black chickens that are black whose name I can't remember for the life of me and the rest are Easter Eggers. What I want to know is when I list the chicks for sale what do I call them, none of them will be pure bred.

    If you just had EE Roos you could call them Olive Eggers or Easter Eggers. They will be barnyard chickens!

    You call them mixed breed or barnyard mix.
