    Like the name, EE/ actually looks like a wyandotte mix with the color, need a better pic of the comb but guess girl right now from what I can see of the comb.

    Yep, Merley-bird is that darklegged. I say he because every single other barred bird looks like this from the same hatch day, and he feathered like the "only" (i ordered 1 EE in the 6week olds and paid for a roo) boy.
    [​IMG] See? Betty (and 10 others) are fully feathered...Merle just....isnt.

    OK, Merle looks like a BR roo in that last picture, the way his legs looked green/black in the one was just weird, the BR roos are often really slow feathering and as thick as his legs look and general posture, I'd bet you're right and that is your roo.
    Chernobyl actually looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte in the second picture, that doesn't look like a pea comb so probably not an EE, gender is borderline, I don't like to see that much comb at that age so am changing my vote to possible boy.
