    Hi there,

    I have 2 cute as buttons Easter-Eggers, sold to me as americaunas, that are 5 and 6 days old. Beautiful shades of creams, smoke, blue, silver, gray almost. Can their feathers now be a clue as to what they might look like as hens? Did any of your baby chicks look like this, and what do they look like now?

    You can tell but not exactly. Brown/Black EE are the most common color, like brown eyes in people. My favorite are the gray blues.

    yes, June is gray/blue. Will she likely stay that way? the other one Be3lla is creams, lemon yellow and smoke gray. What color are the typical brown/black EE as a chick?
