    Maybe they're not true buff's but a mix breed? Just pondering here.

    It's possible they are an easter egger. I have one that lays green another that lays pink.

    Yes. I agree. You have been duped as to the breed of your chickens.

    I think they are Easter Eggers. Here is a pick of my EEs and also my buff Orpingtons.

    They should start getting bigger as they mature. My EE that lays green eggs is laying larger ones now. It just takes some time.

    The 'puffy' cheeks tend to be an EE trait. I live the green eggs

    The eggs will get bigger as they get older. We have an Ameraucana that lays green eggs - we love it. The rest of our girls lay brown eggs.

    I was always told that about the ears as well but my leghorn mix has blue green ear lobes but lays cream colored eggs
