    Thank you MackChick!

    Chics, We are lucky, we live in a rual area and there are no restrictions for us, other than coop size and my husband made it big enough for 36 chickens. We were planning to bring a roo or 2 into the flock any way. Good luck with your girls [​IMG]

    My 11 week pullet has an EE father and Orp mother. Her comb isn't like the others of the same age (full orps) but I'm not sure it's pea shaped either. Do you think I can expect colorful eggs from her?

    She has a muff/beard that didn't really show up in the pictures.

    I would think you would get a green egg! The comb may be a modified (combination comb), but, I would think colored eggs!

    Love the pic with the wheaten colored EE
    Question
    My understanding is that EEs are Amercuanas mixed with some other breed
    If true and my Lavender Amercauna breeds to my Light Brahma will those chicks be EEs?
    Anyone have an idea of what ill get.?
    I'd love white EEs or a light background not mostly dark birds

    Do most come out variations of brown and black? I am partial to the lighter colors
