That is one of life's big mysteries with EE chicks! The only one I ever had that didn't totally change was Eos. She was a white chick and ended up white with apricot markings. Of course an EE cockerel will not look even a bit like any of the pullets when they are grown.Very curious as to how he/she will look with adult plumage!
Good idea. I did lose a rooster, but not that one. So I still have to deal with him. Unless maybe the lost rooster was the reason he wouldn’t go in the coop in the first place. Maybe he will go in better now.
The total loss is two. The Easter Egger and one cockerel. There was a third bird, a pullet, wandering around outside the coop when I went out to open up in the morning. So I’m really glad she survived. I’ve laid eyes on everyone else, and they are all fine.
That’s awesome!! would love that for my grandchildren (and myself haha)!!She lays a lovely light blue!
Thank you! They are nice little hens and the yellow-ish comes up for hugs everyday!At that age these all look like hens to me! Basing that on comb size/color, and feather shape/color pattern. There’s no telltale random rooster patches and all of the feathers look very rounded in shape. I’m not an expert but I vote hens. Pretty birds!
