    I finally got my little chicks after a 4 week wait. My feed store had ordered 20 "ameracauna" pullets from Cackle that came in last Friday. I ran down to the store at the scheduled time only to discover that a man had come early and bought every single one of them--plus 30 other assorted pullets. I was very unhappy and the feed store personnel were apologetic and tacked on a 10 pullet order to their RIR order that arrived today. I ran down again and picked out 4 little EE cuties [​IMG] Now I am just hoping they really are all girls and can't wait to see what colors they turn out to be when grown. I got one that is a silver blue, another with a rusty red stripe down the back, the third is silver blue with that cute chipmunk coloring and number four is a deep brown, almost black little chipmunker. Any thoughts on how they will turn out?

    From what I have been learning on EE, the grey one with a stripe might have lots of Silver in her when older and the gray with no stripe might be a "blue" EE! I love EE, never exactly know what you will get! Lets hope I was somewhat right on them! lol

    They are really colorful little babies. The one with the red stripe is quite outgoing already and when I look into the brooder she runs up to the side and starts peeping. If I take the lid off she runs to my hand. Very inquisitive little character. I'll have to take pics as they grow up and watch the changing colors. I do hope the silver blue one stays blue and that they all grow up to be ladies!

    I'll take some more pics when I have had them a week and post them. The little silver blue chick has wing feathers with light orange so she is going to be an interesting color.

    I just wish it would stop raining here in the midwest. My chicken coop is under construction in the garage with all the pieces cut out but I can't get it outside and put it together because of all the storms. I might just have to build these little guys a real ark [​IMG]

    I'd love to have a few silver-blues like that one... it's gorgeous.
