    Hi I was wondering what outcomes would be if I decided to get a rooster later. Right now I have 3 EE pullets, two have ear tufts and beards. The other is clean faced. Any recommendations? What breed rooster could I successfully get pretty chicks with? [​IMG]

    I don't know about a rooster, but EEs don't have 'tufts'..they have muffs and beard. Not sure if you realized the difference in those genes.

    Maybe you should just get and EE Roo.
    EE are rather pretty birds if I don't say so myself. Have 8 of them gems. [​IMG]

    I'd get an Easter Egger or a true Ameraucana rooster. The chicks would all be Easter Eggers, but seems like the best choice to me.

    Makes sense, I was thinking of just getting an EE roo, but I think I will wait awhile.
