    She/he started out as standard chipmunk chick with a little blue coloring in the wings. Turned completely blue grey with adolescent fuzz, now is sprouting mostly white feathers, some blue and a speckled head.

    Any opinions or is it still way to early to tell?

    Easter Eggers come in all sorts of beautiful colors. You have a great example of gorgeous colors there. [​IMG] I have a couple with alot of blue in them, and I think they are just beautiful. Keep us updated ... I would love to see the coloring this one ends up with!

    Hmmmmm....good question. Katy is right they do tend to come lots of different colors due to their mixed blood lines most of the time. I have 2 little girls among a set of 12 that turned out solid black on one and one one she is black with 2 white feathers. I have NO solid black chickens and I was very confused at first, but then I thought about it. I am so happy, they are so shiny and beautiful.

    That Easter Egger will be a mixed combo color of light and dark... almost splash.

    The BR roo in the background looks interesting as well.
