Their feathering looks very similar, although their beards and muffs vary. All have tail feathers equally full. Legs, are all slate and none especially thick. I was thinking 3 boys, but these EEs and Ameraucanas are tough in all black. A breeder friend hatched the eggs for me. The plan was 5 Ameraucanas but one died and then she had 3 EE eggs she said I could have. I took those but forgot which were which. One had to be culled because of a crop defect- but I don't know if that was an EE or an Ameraucana. So technically 3/3 or 2/4 as to breed.
I understand or have come to understand they may all be "EE" because of breed standards, but it would be nice to know...Here's some body shots and legs too.
