    Brahma x Easter Egger.

    They all have colors both the Brahma and EE would carry on, they all have the pea comb, the body, the feathered shanks, and the BBR colored girl even has some extra fuzz on her throat.

    I need to post Pics of my 6 BB X EEs. I have one that is possibly the ugliest bird I have ever seen. He has the ugliest traits from both and not comined very well. He will not be breeding! Now the other roo, I suspect or very dominant pullet, is going to be the looker! I can't wait!

    If they are all Brahma x Easter Eggers, then they are just Easter Eggers right?

    Most EEs lay interesting colored eggs (not all). With this cross it decreases the chances of nice colored eggs.

    Quote:If they lay colored eggs, technically - yes. [​IMG] However when I have EE's that aren't the usual hatchery stock, I always like to mention what they are. Even if they're something like an EE x Polish.

    The brown one almost looks like a welsummer, just the wrong comb. The other two definitely have brahma in them and I could agree with EE.
