    I was wondering if anybody would be able to help me identify the colors of my 4 EE chicks. I'm just curious to see what they're going to look like when they get their big girl feathers in.

    The very first picture is about what my white one looked like. She is 3 1/2 weeks old now and is getting in white/cream colored feathers.

    My Easter Egger is a now a year old, but here is what she looked like at various ages. She most resembled your Lilly as a chick. Shelays blue-green eggs. Have fun watching your girls grow up.

    Sheena is very pretty! I wouldn't mind at all having a hen that looks like her. Thanks!




    I figured she would be some form of white. I've had a lot of people tell me that it's really hard to tell what color EE chicks are going to be since they're not pure which is completely fine with me. Now I get to be pleasantly surprised. [​IMG]

    Well, Leira ended up having a cross beak and she didn't make it [​IMG], but here are the other three at 3 months old. Any ideas on what to call these colors?

    I haven't found anybody on here or the chicken swap facebook page that will even take a guess on what colors they are. [​IMG]

    Thats because EEs don't really have "named" colors since they are not an official breed. I have heard people refer to them using named colors from other breeds...but honestly most EEs are such beautiful, completely random mixes of colors that you can make up your own names for them [​IMG]. BTW...I am very jealous of Lilly, that is my favorite color in EEs and I can't seem to get a chick that turns out that way.
