Our 5 EE's arrived on May 14, 2007 from MMH. We love their coloration and distinctive personalities. The 40-something year-old kids in us are looking forward to our first "Easter Eggs". They live in our main coop with our 5 Mottled Cochins, 3 Silver Sebrights, 2 Black Tailed Buff Japs and our Silver Spangled Hamburg.
