    OMG they are adoreable with those cheeks! So- what colors could chipmunk ones be?
    I'm going to get 2 from a member nearby. I'm hoping they won't turn out black! Too many black birds around here these days.

    HappyMtn~ I don't know what they will look like..lol

    6littlechickies~did all of your EE have the cheeks as chicks or just Black Mama?

    All three of mine have greenish color legs and cheeks.
    Will mine keep there cheeks or do they out grow them? The brown chicks cheeks are just twice the size of the other's cheeks.

    ging3rhoffman ~ beautiful pics I am glad to see that they kept there cheeks, I love that about the EE. I would have never been able to match the chicks with the 10 week old, they look totaly different. Thank you for sharing. [​IMG]

    Forgot to say love the names!

    I am hoping mine come out with a lot of variation like yours. They probably will because all three are way different. All three have cheeks so hopefully they keep them. [​IMG]

    That is what i love about the EE's, watching them grow up and change so much. Then you just cant wait to see what color of eggs they will lay. I have five older girls that are now 21 weeks old, they started laying at 17 weeks old. One out of the 5 still hasnt laid yet. So, not only are they neat to watch grow up, its super neat to see what color of egg each one will lay. (The little soft brown colored egg is from my silver laced wyandotte)
