    After reading through the forum here I'm guessing the chicks I thought were Ameraucana's are EE? I got them at our local feed store. I've attached some pics. My girls are 23 weeks and haven't started laying yet(waiting on that very impatiently). What do you guys think?? Also should I be expecting eggs soon?? I don't know if they squat yet because they are the most skittish birds I have and don't like to be touch, unlike my darling little Stella(black sex link) who thinks she's a dog.[​IMG]

    EEs. And they could lay almost any day. The wait for the first eggs sure feels like forever!

    If your original birds came as chicks from a farm store they are almost assuredly Easter Eggers.

    we did get a very light colored egg today so I'm not sure if it is just from one of my other girls or from one of the teenagers?(EE). I guess I'll have to wait and see

    They look like mine and I think they are Ameraucanas, when we got them we were told that one was a Rhode Island Red and the other an Ameraucana, but now they are exactly alike. I will see if I can get a good picture, mine are skittish too. Patty

    Easter Eggers. They could lay any color of egg. Most likely blue/green but not necessarily. They could lay any shade of brown and off white eggs.
