    Then perhaps free ranging is not an option in your area. A large secure run is almost as good.

    I bought my first EE the other day. The bin said pullets. This one was the only one like it in the bin. I just had to have her! She is so sweet too and since I only bought one I allowed her to sit in my lap for the drive home. She joins the brooder of 3 at 3 weeks old (a cuckoo maran and 2 BA's) and one SLW a few days older. She fit right in with the others and she's thriving. She's already been outside 2 warm days and loves to Peck around.

    Now I read the post above about the light ones being roos.. Yikes! I hope not. That would crush me. I can't have one in town. I'll fall in love and have to rehome! :/

    Her she is. Not named yet as I don't have a clue what color she might grow up to be.
    Anyone with a guess? And do all EEs get bearded? She doesn't have puffy cheeks. But she does have a pea comb.

    Not all are bearded and not all light ones are roosters.
