    My EE is a bully. She is constantly walking over the top of the other 2. Any others have the same problem?

    Here are my two EEs and one of my BOs. The light colored one to the left is Ari and the one with the darker head is Kona. They were labeled as Aracaunas at the store but I found out here that they are most likely just EEs. That is fine as they are beautiful. Ari is the smartest bird in the group and she is the one that likes to fly up onto my shoulder. Kona is more skittish but is very concerned about the rest of the flock and seems to "mother hen" them. I just love these girls!

    OH man. Last time I posted here my EEs were like, Tiny little babies. I was off at college and missed them growing, but Man, come back to one heck of a surprise!! xD here's the update.

    [​IMG] Bell is kinda hard to see here. (but she was the whitish blue colored chick)

    [​IMG] This was Mariposa, the brown faced black chick.

    This one has me confused. I hatched a batch of EE and this is one that I just can't determine sex on yet. S/he started out as a chocolate colored chick. Legs are not thick, no noticeable pointy saddle feathers, no rooster type behaviors. Could I possibly have one of the elusive dark and white EE pullets?

    Cockerels will grow tail feathers slower than pullets. Compare tails. That one is hard to tell. At first I think pullet then I looked at the comb and think maybe cockerel.

    She feathered in quickly. We had 17 EEs hatch on Feb. 9 and I kept the ones that feathered in quickest. The obvious cockerels were sold weeks ago. I keep thinking pullet on this one, but the comb is throwing me. [​IMG]

    How old are they? If fairly young, it might not be that she's mean so much as oblivious. Even as adults my chickens sometimes bowl over one another when one is excited and running and the other doesn't get out of the way fast enough. ;)
