    What color with these little EE gals turn out to be? They have the chipmunk stripe down their backs.

    You can't really know, I have 5 and one of them had a white face as a chick (Her name is Luna) And now her head and face are dark red. Another two were identical as chicks, and now they look very different.

    Are you sure they are gals? My chipmunk striped babies almost always turn out to be roos. (Not an scientific study... just kinda noticed) [​IMG]

    I sure hope all of my chipmunks don't turn into roo's [​IMG] I ordered 15 pullets from Ideal and at least 8 of them are chipmunks. That would be bad.
