Really? I thought it would be a cockerel.
Your Thelma and Louise look just like our Rinn and Benct. Rinn started out solid blue with a rusty orange patch on her head. Benct started out a very dark dark cocoa brown marbled color. Now they look alike except Rinn has a good bit less of the copper color and kept the rusty spot on top of her head.
It's so hard to get pictures of them that do their true colors justice. There is so much pattern and color on them. Every time I look at them I see something a little different.
Here's our only hatchery EE this year. I love her/his color. Hatched on St Patty's Day
And one of the ones we hatched from an EE over SLW. Hatched on March 19th.
I chose puffy cheeks, and more colored legs, but that's not what will tell me that when they grow up what shade of blue/green (or even neither color) egg they will give me. I know that I want variety so I've chosen white-ish chicks, creamy/gray-ish chicks, dark and light black chicks, and brown chicks. Even when they look alike with their down colors, they have looked different as adults.
Here's my current assortment: approximately 2 weeks old
Nothing is saying COCKEREL to me yet. I'd still wait and see, but so far I'm leaning pullet.
So the EE's I got from McMurray are 8 weeks old as of yesterday. I just realized the other day that I have a clean faced one. She doesn't have a fuzzy face! She's really pretty, but I was just surprised as the rest of them do.
These 2 looked almost exactly alike as chicks and at 6 weeks they are so different I love it!
They look really pretty! Can you get a side shot pic of Titus? His colors that he has look beautiful!
thanks! And he is the prettiest EE I've seen in a while.. As much as I don't want to he might have to be rehomed..
