    I just put some pure buff Brahma and some Brahma/EE cross eggs into my bator. (First time ever incubating!) I'm really curious as to what the EE crosses will look like. Has anyone ever hatched any of these before? If so I would love to see yours.

    I'm thinking they might have muffs, beards, and feathered legs, and lay olive or khaki eggs.

    I'm hoping to hatch some Salmon Faverolle/EE crosses at some point also. I think those will be really cute and sweet natured...

    I would love to see pictures of your chicks.
    We have Brahmas too and crossed to an EE roo.
    Our EE roo isnt typical though. He is clean faced and Ameraucana bred. He was from a project but did come from a blue egg so my daughters are hatching some chicks from him. Our chicks did get feathered feet like the Brahma mommas.
    I think the EE/ Salmon Faverolle cross should be really cute. I think many of the mixes are beautiful and unique.
    We lost our old Brahma roo so can not pure breed the Brahma hens right now. Ours are light Brahmas.

    Since this one has a dark brahma momma does anyone think the feather sexing will still work?

    2 girls look alike and much prettier now, but haven't taken recent pics. They are huge compared to our other girls. Brown eggs though. I've thought about hatching some from them w/ our best roo, but would be awhile.

    Here's what we ended up with from a light Brahma roo and an EE hen that looks like the one in the post above from averytds

    They look like Brahmas with muffs and beards at 8 weeks and I believe the first one is a little roo and the second is a pullet

    Oh! I've hatched out a couple. But unfortunetly they are all gone right now. And my new chicks it will be a little hard to tell for a while yet. But mostly they looked like a Brahma with a muff, and also they had a bit of spots and flecks and lacing, more so than a normal brahma. Once I figure out which chicks are EE/Brahma I will post some pictures.
