    Subscribed! Just one EE here. Love her to bits:) She has a great personality already and is sooo friendly! Going through an awkward stage though:/

    Hello fellow EE lovers! I have a question, in regards to an EE I hatched this year (5 weeks old). This was the only chick to hatch out of my first time incubating, I also bought a GLW pullet to keep him company so he would not be lonely. (I say he because I have a tendency to call them all he until I know for sure). Acting rooish - chest bumping with the GLW (but who knows she is supposed to be a she and she does the same thing). Seems to be getting thicker legs also. What do you all think?

    Will have to get another pic of his face, dang thing would not be still, but shows no signs of comb growing larger or redness.

    From my uneducated opinion, the parents look like really large birds, so the offspring should look really large. My girls do the chest bumping also at 4 thru 6 weeks. Very amusing to watch!

    Where did you get her? She looks very pretty.... Just like the girl I just got at the Norco meet up. Is she an OE?

    Yes they are quite big. That makes me feel a lot better. Hopefully is a girl, lord knows I have gotten at least 4 roos so far this year - 2 Cuckoo Marans, 1 Austrolorp, and 1 BYM, plus the one I already have.

    The parents created a sex link mating. That is a cockerel that got sex linked silver from mom. Any brown chicks would be pullets.
