    In our last order we got a Easter Egger roo!
    He got named Ruffles before he was even out of the box. -We didn't know he was a he at the time, but had a pretty good feeling he was.-
    A few pictures~

    Thank you! We love him to bit.
    Not sure if it's usually Easter eggers they send, but I would say that most of the time they are roos.

    Our first batch was a Dominique, was super sweet and pretty sure was a roo. Unfortunately we had an outbreak of coccidiosis and lost all but our 3 Dark Cornish. -We do a preventative dose on new babies now.-

    Our final batch was a Rainbow layer group.. So I'm not really sure who is the extra.. I think it might be the Turken though since it's the only one like it in the group.
    No idea if this one is a roo yet.. Only 12 weeks old this week.

    Not sure why I said Ruffles was our last group.. Probably because he's my favorite. [​IMG]

    I ordered the rainbow layers too !! I think your turken is a girl. A couple years ago I ordered the brown egg layer assortment and never figured out which was the exotic since I got a light brahma which we ate , a buff Cochin which got stolen and a white jersey giant that we still have. We call her baby Huey because that's who she reminded us of when she was a baby.
