I'll bet that the brown-head is a Fayoumi and I have one of those, too.
I have 2 Fayoumi pullets, hatch date 8/24 last year, of which one has just gone broody. They are flighty and lay small/medium eggs. Since I want eggs for sale, they are likely to be sold or culled.
Yellows 12, 14, 15 and 20 all look like EEs to me.
I also have some of the yellow-gray bodies with whiter wings. No clue what they will turn out to be.
My yellow top hats look like this at 3 weeks.
In your feather-footed list (FF), I have two of #3. The leg feathers weren't apparent upon arrival.
Does the FF chick #7 have teeny-tiny wings? If it does, I have one of those, too. I'd like it to stay the size it is and let me carry it in my pocket.
HI LIddy. AWE your babies look so FLUFFY!
Yes the brown one is Fayoumi That one I am sure about only cause.. I asked like 10 people hahaha.
Thank you for the numbers on the easter eggers! I can see the puffy cheeks now. I could see on some but on others I was like hmm they are kind of puffy but not really puffy.. But I am definitely excited to have so many! Im going to guess I got them in the rainbow pullet group I ordered so YAY that means most should be girls! I have been wanting colored eggs.
The yellow and gray bodies actually I feel that way about most of the yellows. Some have a lil color in their wings that are feathering out and soem are just feathering out solid.
Thank you for the pictures I am excited to see what they look like in a couple of weeks. I am wondering if I put a little kid pony tail holder on their head to hold the feathers out of their eyes. I knew someone once who who had some polish and she was getting rid of them cause she said they couldnt see anything. So now I am worried! I do have two itty bitty tiny yellow ones. I agree we could definitely carry them in our pockets!
I did not realize How many feather footed ones I had till I took individual pictures. so many colors ! I have almost convinced my family to get this again next year! I have to sell some though thats the deal. Hopefully by next year I will be better at identifying breeds. I will probably update this post in a week or so with more pictures. see what they grow into.
