    This is my favorite chick of the group. Very outgoing and always on the move. It has a fluffy mane around its neck. Is this just an EE or something else. I have another one that look almost like this.

    There there is two of these spotted headed ones. Not sure if they are just EEs too or maybe Buttercup?

    Would this little outgoing one be an EE?

    Another EE or maybe a Phoenix?

    I believe this is an EE. The color is wrong for purebred ameraucan but can see some slight traits.

    I would say all EE except for the second one... the face markings do look very Buttercupish..... Not like any of the EEs I have seen [​IMG]

    I ordered the Ornamental Layer collection from MMH. So not sure what all they include. I know I got a handful of White Crested Black Polish and 7 that I thought were Phoenix...but maybe they are all EEs. Im so confused lol.

    Looking more closely... I'll bet you're right on that last one! I didn't notice the comb.... EEs have pea combs and that one looks just like the Phoenix chicks. [​IMG] Congrats [​IMG]

    So, look for the pea comb on the others.. if it's pea comb with green legs I say EE.... if it's a single comb with green/blueish legs.. I say Pheonix [​IMG]

    Ohhh that would be awesome if I got some of each. I was supposed to get 8 different varieties, so I am hoping so.

    So far I think I have identified...

    White Crested Black Polish
    White or Buff Laced Polish
    EE (not sure how many)
    Phoenix (maybe both gold and silver)
    Crevecoeur (didnt make it)
    Buttercup or Campine
    And the fluffy ones (like the first pic), which I cant remember what someone said they might be...Orpingtons or Orloff?
    And maybe a Blue Andalusian

    This is not an easy task lol Thanks for the help tho!!
