    Our EE, Peggy, has MUCH different tail feathers than her sister- I realize that EE's vary immensely, but I wanted to be sure. She was also the first to start clucking...

    Peggy (sideways, sorry!)

    Her sister Wendy for comparison, same age(again, sideways, not sure how to make them go the right way, lol):

    Any thoughts as to why one carries higher tailfeathers and cheek tufts where the other has no cheektufts and lower tailfeathers? Is it just because the EE is such a "mutt" breed??
