    Any guesses what these chicks are?[​IMG] They are both extras from my MM order. One tan with brown stripes and mask and one is more yellow in color, feet and beaks on both look the same. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks.

    I'm thinking EE chicks.

    I'm sorry to sound ignorant but I am so new to the chicken terms - what does EE mean?

    I'm so sorry. An EE is an Easter Egg chicken, otherwise known as Easter Egger and sometimes referred to (erroneously) by hatcheries as Ameraucanas.

    Quote:Makes total sense now - I just had no clue. I've heard Ameraucanas called Easter Egg Chickens because they lay different colored eggs but I never saw the abbrieviation EE.

    Thanks.
