    We ended up getting 5 chicks. NH, GLW, EE, and I believe two of either BR or CM! They were to be one of each, but the feed store, I think, gave us sisters.
    These are shots when they were two days old.

    Your EE is growing alot faster than your others. Mine did that also, I thought something was/is wrong with my others that they were not growing very fast. I had to seperate my EE's cause they were starting to step on my little ones. (This is the first time I have raised baby chicks.) So is it normal for EE's to grow so fast?

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    My EE is doing the same thing...she is about 1/3 larger than all the other chicks.

    So far she, though, she doesn't seem to bully anyone.

    I had bantam EEs and BRs. The EEs were much bigger from day 1, feathered faster and grew faster, but it wasn't really a problem. Then one day that turned around and the BR started filling out like a true dual purpose- significantly bigger than the EE now. I think that started around week 10.

    The EE is a week older.

    I very carefully climb into the brooder upside down, invert the camera and wait till they pose....

    actually, I just take the camera and lower into the brooder...this is just taken.
