And can someone post a pic of there hen now if it looked like this when it was a chick.
It's possible. Are her legs kind of greenish compared to the other chicks? I don't have a picture of my EE at 1 day old, but here is one of her at around 3-4 weeks old.
And here are a couple when she was full grown. She did not give me the coveted blue/green egg, but gave me a nice light cream colored egg. Her chipmunk style sisters give me the blue/green eggs. Sadly, she was killed by a hawk at Christmas time.
Notice the muffs and beard on her? That is a typical EE look...but since EE's are crosses, I'm not sure that all of them carry this trait (although all three of mine did).
That looks like an EE to me because of the green legs, but I haven't had one like that so I can't show any pics. She's cute though!
Do all EE's have green legs? I got a batch of assorted pullets form the hatchery and I am trying to figure out what they all are!
The color of the legs definitely do sick out.
If she is an EE she's gonna be one pretty lady!
newchicksnducks No because i have 3 other brown easter eggers that have alot greener legs.
Oh, she's very pretty. My EEs did not have the muff when they were babies and their legs were kind of golden with brownish mottling. But by the time they were three weeks old they definitely had the green legs. I've heard that not all EEs have the green legs.
Yours seems to have the golden legs -- they will likely turn green. She has a darkish T on her head... I wonder what that will develop into as she gets older? You'll have to show us more pictures of her as she grows.
Here are my three EEs as babies. Mine all had very pronounced puffy cheeks when they were little and while the cheeks have slimmed down a bit, they are still there.
And here is the one on the left at a month old. Notice the legs appeared pinkish as babies and turned very dark green within a few weeks. Their necks all appear fuller than most chickens.
She looks a lot like the two little EE bantams I have! Very cute!

and if she is an EE, please keep us posted as she grows. I love seeing how they change and wish more EEs were listed.
NO not all EEs have green legs. I have a yellow legged partridge color. I have a white one that started with yellow legs and now has green. The leg color can change as they grow.
