I have 4 chickens that are 6 months old and are now laying eggs. I thought my 2 gold chickens were buff orpingtons ... until they layed white eggs!! Now I think they are buff minorcas. What kind of chicken is the white and gray color? They both lay brown eggs.

Your second last girl is a Blue Splash Marans. :) Blue pullet could be an Andalusian, a white egg-producing breed.

What color are the earlobes on the buff?

The buffs have white ears and white eggs, I have seen them right after they lay. The white and gray chickens lay light brown eggs and they have pinkish ears and black hairless legs.

Interesting. Like I stated, Buff Minorca sounds about right for a white-laying, white-lobed bird. :D

Perhaps Blue Orpington, then, on the last chook? :) I guess, then, it would be possible for the "Blue Splash Marans" to actually be a Splash Orpington?
