    Hmm. I'm really not seeing ee there, except the roo looks like he has muffs? Yellow legs, straight combs, idk. I'm guessing ee cross, or maybe third generation crosses. The roo is pretty, with the bright colored body and the blue tail!

    [​IMG] I'm sorry you got a bad deal on Craigslist. Sometimes it's really hit or miss there. Those are definitely not EE, or if they are, their genetics are way less than 40% EE. If I were to guess, I'd say those are crosses involving some Welsummer mix in there.

    Maybe they'll beat all odds and lay some blue eggs for you!

    Did they promise you they were all pullets? Or did they tell you straight run?
