    Got these two out of a group of 14 from the Easter Egger bin at TSC. They are the only ones that have no beard or muffs, and yellow legs. I really don't think they are Easter Eggers, any guesses on what they may be?

    This is TERROR, he/she has a pea-comb.

    This is VENDETTA. He has a single-comb.

    EE's are mixed breeds, so they can have beards or not. And they can have any color legs. They both look like EE's to me.

    The first one is NOT a barnevelder.

    Didn't mean to offend. It may have barnevelder (or more likely dark cornish) in it, but it's not pure barnevelder.

    Here's pure barnevelder chicks:

    Please don't think that you offended :) I love learning and without help from others who are more knowledgeable, I wouldn't have that opportunity

    They are adorable! I know there is a big difference between hatchery and breeder but that is amazing. They really look nothing like mine for Ideal. Unfortunately, due to Marek's I have to either go hatchery or hatch and vaccinate. My last couple hatches resulted in having 21 roos!!! I just can't risk that again so for now, I have to be happy with hatchery quality.

    EEs! x2 All of my EEs have looked UTTERLY DIFFERENT, ranging from yellow as chicks to the usual chipmunk pattern, and then a whole range of colors when they got older.
