Those cute looking chipmunk striped EE chicks... what will they look like as grown birds?
Try feathersite.com. They have a page on there for ee's that should give you a good idea. I've had them but the color they grow up to be is too hard to describe.
Most EEers are chipmunk.... Or at least all mine hatch out that way.
This is what my EE chipmunks look like. I got them from Murray McMurray. They lay light blue and light green eggs. I also got some much darker chipmunks. Their heads are black with gold flecks instead of the gold heads with black flecks. They lay olive green eggs.
So how soon do they get their adult feathers?
MsMarbles was a little chipmunk when she was a chick. She ended up light brown with a greyish tail. She's an EE, coming up on her 1st birthday (or is it hatchday?)
Here are my chipmunk babies!
This was mine as a chick:
Here she is grown up:
Rebelcowboy. I like the feeders in the pics. Was thinking of trying something like that. I was wondering how that is working for you. Also wondering if you use that for water?
Beautiful chick! I could have totally not guessed that she'd get that gorgeous chestnut color as an adult. I guess you really have to wait to know what they'll look like.
At what age do they get their adult feathers?
