    There are a few EE chick to adult pic threads here. The leg color doesn't have anything to do with egg color. Their colors change so much when they start to get older. I had a silverish one and it's turning out to be black and white.

    Stay away from light colored ones and go with the darker chick colors, those have more unique colors later on.

    Just had to share, the pullet on the left is an EE that started out grayish and on the right is a Cinnamon Queen. I was so excited when we got this chick because I was sure she was going to be really pretty and unique...I thought wrong...from now on I will not sell an EE's until they are at least 8 weeks. I'm crossing my fingers she lays pretty eggs but I'm willing to bet she'll lay brown...

    She's one of the 2 on the left. I sold the other one that looks just like her, she also feathered out looking exactly like a Cinnamon Queen minus the leg color and comb.

    My favorite from this year was my least favorite chick. She was pretty much just a dark fluff ball, no real pretty markings and I love her now!

    Watch the legs. In my experience, the first sign an EE is a boy is when his legs thicken up.

    I have two EE chicks, and neither turned out as I expected, but in my eyes, they are both gorgeous! The first one is now 11 weeks old, and the second is about 6 weeks old.
    The little puffball on the right:

    looked like this at 4 weeks:

    and then grew into this girl at 11 weeks:

    This little girl with a big brown stripe down her back:

    is now this gray girl in front...at least she still has eyeliner:

    We got the 1st one from a feed store, and the 2nd one came from Meyer Hatchery.

    This boy was a light yellow chick. I dont have any pics but he had the chipmunk strips and was so cute.

    I never had any interest in owning a rooster until I saw an EE roo. They are, in my opinion, the prettiest of all roosters.
