    I am making another attempt at figuring out what this girl is. She is about 3 weeks old in this picture. She is looking all white so far and has green legs. not the best picture but hopefully someone will recognize the breed.

    If she has green legs maybe she is an EE or a cross

    White giants look just like that as babies too. They are white with green ( willow) colored legs. Congratulations. Many people do not raise the White Giants anymore. Cackle Hatchery is already sold out of them for 2009 on their website !!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Does she have yellow on the bottoms of her feet? Or is it white/pinkish under there?

    I thought EE had the fluffy cheeks. is that something that could have not been passed on if she is a cross?

    Quote:Not necessarily. Technically EEs are mutts anyway so there's no guarantee of anything.

    My white Jersey giants started off as dark gray, almost black chicks, and then feathered in white.

    I'm thinking yours is an Easter egger. They don't necessarily have to have the fluffy faces, as they're technically a mixed breed.

    Here's one of my white JG's at 18 days old:
