    Good morning...

    I picked up this duo this morning, I am not interested in "Standard of Breed" or show quality or pet quality... I just want to know what I have...

    This is Fred:

    This is Ginger: I know Ginger is in need of a saddle but she was formally kept in a barn with 4 roosters and about 8 hens so the ratio was way off, she will be much more happy with me I have only 1 rooster and thats Fred.

    This is Fred and Ginger together.

    EE, But Fred looks close to the wheaten Ameraucana color.
    Legs should be slate color unless it's a black bird.

    You have a nice pair of EE's there. Enjoy.

    God Bless,
     
  4. I agree. Look really close to Ameraucana's but just a hair off. But great looking birds. You should be proud of them. And the poor girl will look much better when she gets her saddle back.

    Fred is certainly a handsome fella; I hope he and Ginger get along well and that they're happy. [​IMG] and yes, I'm sure Ginger will feel much better with her "dress" on... [​IMG] I've got several girls that need their bare backs covered. Gotta get 'em dressed up! I'd been putting it off b/c it's so bloomin' hot here I didn't know if it would help protect them from sunburn or just make them feel hotter. Any ideas?

    I also have a Fred & Ginger, but mine are bantam Cochins. [​IMG] Congrats on the pretty new pair of EEs! If they are as sweet as my EEs you will love them!

    Don't worry about how much you paid for them!! Anything is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it! They are gorgeous! If they are worth $40 to you, then that is what they are worth - period! [​IMG]
    Enjoy!!!
