    I think they're probably all hens. They're very pretty too! [​IMG]

    Lovely ladies! I love how their colours all match!

    That crested one probably is a silkieXEE mix, however I don't know much about silkies. [​IMG]

    Hmm, I think I still stand by with the SilkieXEE... Or something with a nice big tail and yellow legs.

    What egg colour do they lay? Or are they laying?

    Thanks to 6chix, bella1210, Firearia, and future repliers.

    I bought these guys from a local guy who has an egg operation and didn't ant these gals. He said they were 19 weeks old and bron egg layers. I hope to find out in a few weeks. I only took three becuase I also ant a pair of easter eggers.

    The dogs are Joe Cocker (Cocker Spaniel) and Princess Sage (English Pointer).

    Quote:Hmm... That rules out EE then doesn't it? [​IMG] I hope someone can give you an answer while I try to figure it out. Maybe they come from the same parents but the crest only showed up in that one...?
