Sorry my pics are of older chicks. They look like grey chipmunks, though. there is a picture of some new hatched ones on laree's hatch thread, page 84 I think.

In that case I just have EEs. The reason being is the parents of the chicks(who aren't mine) look exactly like silver ameraucanas, and I was wondering if I had that or EEs. One of my chicks is black and the other is brown, and both have beards and cheek tufts. I've noticed that they also have fuzz down to their ankles. Does this mean they have feathered feet? The person I got the eggs from may have put their hen with their other rooster, so I don't know. Oh well, I'm happy to have them either way! big_smile

Fuzzy feet means a mix, do they have dark colored legs? They should be very interesting looking when grown anyway.

They sound lovely! Nothing prettier than EEs and with feathered legs, no less. Congratulations!
