    Not sure if this is in the right place, so I appologize if it needs to be moved.

    I got a couple EE chicks, and I was wondering if anyone could look at the chicks and at least give me an idea of what they will turn out to be. I realize they're mixes, so it may not be possible.

    Two of my EE chicks this spring were identically colored as chicks (chipmunk stripes) yet ended up considerably different colored as adults; another one was far far paler than either of the two abovementioned, yet wound up with adult plumage nearly identical to one of the above. So I think it is hard to predict with assurance, at least sometimes.
