    They are all 3 weeks old and I dont know if they are all just EEs or if the last one is a Golden Pencilled Hamburg? The first 3 are very outgoing & nosy and hate to sit still! The last one is much more quiet and hides among others.

    They all look like Easter Eggers to me.

    EEs. Notice the green legs. Green legs = green eggs! Nice birds!

    So most chickens with green legs are EE's? I dont think I saw any Ameraucana or Araucana chickens in MMHs book, just their mixed EEs.

    These 4 look so different from the other 5 I just posted in another thread. Is it possible for EE's to look so totally different?

    Yes, EE's come in a HUGE variety of colors, some may look alike, some may be very unique! They are very nice birds!!!!! Steph

    These 4 are my favorites by far. They are very inquisitive and outgoing, but hard to catch lol. I dont mind a bit if they are EE'ers, can't wait for those neat eggs, I just want to have my facts right if someone ever asks what I have lol.

    When they were younger, someone thought one was a Buttercup, or Pencilled Hamburg and that the second one down was an Orloff? I think it was.

    Thanks for the help.

    The cheeks are starting to puff out, and with the green legs, I think you are safe to tell folks they are EEs.

    Pretty, too!

    What kind of comb is that on the last one? The pic is kinda blurry. If it is a cup, or double comb you probably have a Sicilian Buttercup. If it isn't I would go with Easter Egger. Feathersite says they are supposed to have willow-green legs anyway...

    The others look like Easter Eggers for sure.

    On the last one, I will have to see if I can get a better pic of her face today. I forgot that the comb might help. I do notice now from looking at the pics that her legs are a different green color than the first 3. Theirs are more of a yellow green, and the last has like a gray/green color. So maybe she is something different.

    This is what MMH says about the Golden Pencilled Hamburg...

    leaden blue shanks and toes, and a neat pointed rose comb. It is a finely built, small, active bird.

    Do the legs look leaden blue like a Hamburg or willow green like a Buttercup? lol

    She is much more petite than the first 3 EE'ers. I will have to get a pic of the comb and see if that helps with the id. Dont know if I can tell the difference, but maybe someone here can.
