Do I have another EE pullet, or something else?

    This pretty 3 day old pullet came without an identity. She has a bit of a muff maybe, but the stripe on her back is not outlined with double stripes like other EE's I've had. Please chime in your educated guesses as to what breed she might be! Thanks in advance, friends.

    I have seen ee babies in many color patterns. Since the EE chicken is indeed a mixed breed chicken they can vary a lot. I do think this is an ee. Just a different colored one.
    Very cute by the way.

    Thanks for your opinion. Will be fun to watch how she turns out! And I've not had blue/green eggs for a while, so that would be nice also.

    She's definitely an Easter Egger. Those greenish legs are a dead giveaway.

    Thanks, Michael. Always a good start to the day when I learn something new about chickens!

    You're welcome. EEs are my granddaughter's (pictured in my avatar) favorite chickens. She loves their colored eggs. :eek:)

    Easter Egger. It is too young to tell "her" gender.

    She was sold as a sexed pullet. Hope the hatchery is right! Last year bought 2 straight run lavenders that ended up both male, and it broken heart-they were beautiful!
