    I have 2 babies that hatched in the last 2 days. I was tol they were Easter eggers. They came from lite greenish blue eggs but have fuzzy black legs and 5 toes??????? I am thinking it was an Easter Egger who laid the egg and the daddy was a Silkie. Is this a possibility? Oh and they do have a beard and the little poof on their cheeks. They are dark brownish with golden colors.They are my first hatches and non the less, they will always be special. I am still learning about breads so I wanted to see what someone else thought.

    Thanks.

    There is no breed standard for EE's they can have 5 toes or more...even less [​IMG] clean legs or feathered top hat or not even a naked neck if you wish.If you want a frizzle have one.So in general if you want to have pretty eggs and a funky looking chicken then have fun with EE's [​IMG]
    We have several EE's here and none are that stereotype looking wild colored green legged chicken...I find those boring when this is one that you can really have fun with.

    Well I just love my 2 they will be a nice addition. I knew they were a mix. The woman I got the eggs from seems to think that her EE mixed with her silkie to make a EE silkie cross. non the less beautiful babies. I am still learning. I am just so happy to have hatched my 2 little wonders.
