What breed do we have here?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Had a friend who got too many birds for their coop/run size who bought extras expecting to lose a few. They asked if we wanted any so we took these 2. They are currently on quarantine before we integrate them to our flock. Our friends were told they were EE's but after looking through all the EE picture threads I am not so sure. We have only ever kept Golden Comets and RIR's so I have no experience with EE's. They are at 5 or 6 weeks currently. Also any idea on what the greyish one may look like when grown. I haven't seen too many pullets with those colors alongside grown up pictures.

Top one looks like an EE to me! Not sure about the bottom one.

Silver one is, and a hen am betting! Is there tail feathers on the little gold one?

Both appear to be EEs in my opinion, and they look like pullets for now. :) They're adorable!

I love the colors on the gold/white/blue EE! I've always wanted one like her. :)

Awesome, Thank you! It's so hard to judge the EE's since there are so many different patterns.
