    My six baby chicks came from ideal about a week ago. They are adorable and my wife is completely smitten (some might say obsessed!). We ordered two RIRs, two Buff Orpingtons, and two Ameraucanas/EEs.

    five of the six chicks are relatively self-explanatory, but one of the EEs looks far different from the other one (a dark brown without the chipmunk stripes). I think she ( or perhaps he, but hopefully not) might be a different breed. If anyone can help me out, that would be great. Anyway enjoy the pics!

    ready for action:

    You should post a clearer pic of the mystery chick! She may very well be an EE, they come in LOTS of different colors!!! I have a black one with some brown and one that is almost completely brown. [​IMG]

    I have a dark brown EE that looks just like that one. The tufts on their cheeks help define the EE's
