    Just for fun, 'cause I know everyone likes pics.... plus a couple of questions:

    Here are my 2 EEs...... they are amazingly friendly (Fatima hops right in your hand when you reach into the brooder) and very tiny!

    1) I have some concerns that Lillith (the black one) is a roo..... just the body shape I guess.

    2) Can anyone tell me what they are going to look like when they grow up, based on your own chicks?

    They are the most character-filled chick faces I've seen in a long time! The muffs (?) just kill me. But I don't have EE's, so I can't guess what they'll look like as hens. I'd love to have EE's, so keep us posted with what they look like as they fill out.

    My Sissy chick looked just like your Fatima when she was little:

    Thanks!
    Yeah, Fatima especially has the most adorable and expressive face: those big poufy cheeks kill me! When she drinks she gets her "beard" wet and the other chicks come and try to drink the water off it. She looks so put out! Hilarious.....
    Sissy is gorgeous!

    So... you don't think Lillith's lankiness is roo-ish, huh?
