    Yeah she does! Funny how they started off so different. My friend also has an EE hen named Sybil that is similarly colored and a light EE. I can't wait to see how long her golden neck feathers get, what her breast feathers do, if her tail feathers darken etc.

    Now you have me concerned. Clowey our white and black Americana(wife's favorite) is the QUEEN of the roost; she (?) is constantly chasing and bossing all the others. I have been telling the wife she must be a roo and now you say this. We shall see they are 4.5 wk old now. I have been trying to get the wife to understand if she is a he it will be gumbo time. This hasn't been received very well. On the farm wifeee would always disappear for a couple days when slaughter time for any animal. Names like Tbone, ol hammy, and mutton never really sunk in with her. When we decided to get these chicks and keep them in a tractor there was to be no "murdering", but I am not having a roo in such a confined space (coop 4x5 attached run 14x5). Can still travel with this set up just tell the neighbor to collect the eggs everyday feed and water good for about 2 weeks.

    Here are my 5 EEs at 1 week, 3 weeks, and 6 weeks old.

    Bull- he was a bully at first (hence the name) but now is ranking under all the girls but turning out to be a neat looking boy, very broad body and head and is now starting to grow a very distinguished grey beard, :)

    Legs- this girl was extremely leggy, now is finally growing into them. Turning out be a lot darker then I figured she would since she was such a light colored chick, just goes to show you just never know what they will look like.

    Cat Eyes- She loves to sit on my shoulder, its sad that her cat eye stripe is fading away with age.

    Cute! Please keep us updated, I'm curious.

    Here is Clara our only EE. I really want a white EE with black flecks, they remind me of snowy owls.

    mmclaughlin, I can't see their bodies too well, but guessing from their heads it looks like the two middle ones will be blue, the one on the left will be blue and brown, and the one on the right will look like my Tiana (see my previous posts).
