    Your EE will grow up to look like a Buttercup.

    Yep. thE Color is actually called Quill, or Red Quill, but most people mistakenly call it Buttercup Pattern. If you look up Red Quill Dutch chickens, or Red Quill Old English Game chickens, you will find some more pictures. Also, Gold Pencilled Hamburgs.

    Do you have any new pictures of your chicks? I just got my EE's and one of mine looks like that one.
    If you could post a recent picture, that would be great. Thanks.
