    Are these araucana babies? Or EE? Any ideas what color they will be? They are 3 weeks old. There are 4 of them.

    The ones I see have tails and puffy cheeks so that would make them probable EE. THe best part about EEs is that they usually start out chipmunk chicks and can turn in to all sorts of variations on pretty. You'll have to wait to see what they will look like!

    cute little EEs, araucanas are rumpless and have tufts, not beards(muffs). Hard to tell what color they will end up, mostly likely something similar to partridge or wheaton.

    Very cute!!! I would love to see weekly pics to watch their change. I'm getting chicks this week and 4 are going to be EE's. I want to do a weekly photo of them to see what they look like as chicks until about 16 weeks old. LOVE EE's!!
