    These are the original two "Easter Eggers" I bought from a local guy.
    He gets them from his friend, on some farm around here, he says.
    Sooo.. He doesn't have as much info about the chicks I buy from him as I wish he did! lol


    First of all, do they look like little pullets of cockerels?
    They are 6-7 weeks by now, I think?

    Secondly... Does anyone have an Easter Egger that looked similar to these two at their age?
    If so, can you share photos?! [​IMG] Would love to get an idea what these two will look like later on. [​IMG]

    First, the tiny one! Has more brown on him, obviously. lol
    They both started out with the "chipmunk" stripe color!

    This one is TINY!

    This one has double, if not tripled, in size! They were the same size when I got them at a few days old.

    I have older pics of two of mine that started out chipmunk colored and looked similar to yours at that age but turned out completely different. Mine are both roos.

    Thank you! How old, approx, were they in those photos?
    Did yours have puffy cheeks when they were younger,
    or is that something that kinda develops later?
    Pretty roos!

    Sunshyne276 that picture looks like some that I have looked like when I purchased them. The hens turned out to look sort of like a Silver Penciled Rock hen color. The roosters now look like the one posted by mikki717 . Sorry I've got no pictures right now but as soon as I get them separated into the right pens (still building them) I'll try to get some and get them posted. I've never poted a picture before.

    Mine were around 14-18 week, but I can't remember exactly. I have it wrote down somewhere. Most started with muffs, but that is kind of the crazy thing. Half of the chicks that had muffs lost them as they aged. But the ones with muffs started out small and some only grew a little yet others got huge.
