    The only thing I'm sure of is that it's an EE. It seems to be a rooster. When I bought it from the feed store (from Ideal stock, I think), it was supposed to be "a banty, two weeks old, I think." I don't think it's grown a single bit since it was supposed to be two weeks old--if so, it's tiny increments. Guesses would be appreciated.

    Oh, also--I know that EEs are blue-eggers crossed with other birds--any guesses as to what breeds it might have behind it? Its wings seem to drop (?) a little--they don't seem to be held tightly to its side?

    I'm not real good on breeds, but I don't think EE. Definite little roo.

    He's got greenish legs (they don't show really well in those photos) and a little comb, so I guessed EE. I'm open to other suggestions, though. The guy at the feed store just knew he was a "white banty." [​IMG]

    He could very well be an ee mix of some sort. I have ee's with no beard and some with. He looks like he is gonna turn out very pretty.

    LOL Mutant bald eagle! I love it. [​IMG] I picked out two of the "white" chicks with a couple of colored feathers in their wings hoping I'd get something nice to look at and it looks as if I did. This one is keeping a golden campine pullet company while she grows a bit and the other is keeping an "orphan" brown red bantam Ameraucana company while it matures. I'm hoping to integrate the pullet with her boyfriend this weekend, so maybe I can put the EEs and Ameraucana together around that time . . . I'm really hoping he's a bantam, really really really hoping . . .

    Edited to add

    Thank you for the help and thanks SO much for the compliments on him! I'm really happy with the EEs I ended up with this year. [​IMG]

    I'm having a weird reaction to a new medication and words are getting really mixed up in my head. [​IMG] Sorry.

    To the OP - Sorry, I completely overlooked the legs. So, EE and definitely roo.
