    I got my chicks from MPC yesterday and three are easter eggers. I was wondering what you call there colorations or if there isn't any special name for them. Also does anyone have pics of there baby chick easter eggers I could compare??? I would love to see them. [​IMG] Oh one more question, I thought easter eggers are supposed to be a medium/smaller bird and ours are the biggest compared to the austrolorps and wandottes I ordered.

    Fluffy (her cheeck feathers cover her eyes [​IMG]) She has about three different shades of brown on her

    Beauty (my son picked that out)She has brown and tan stripes down her back.

    Monroe (after Marilyn Monroe) She is all yellow with a darker yellow on her head.

    I just hatched five chicke out of blue eggs. Only one has green legs and two have cheek tufts. Four of them are going to be variations of beige/ wheaten/ cream, and one is a crazy multi- brown. No pics yet. Your fluffies are very cute!
