    I don't know how interested anyone is in this but I find it facinating that EE's can be any color/pattern! If we could all post pictures of chicks and then a pic when they are older, We could know what to expect when we pick a color when they are chicks. Anyone interested?[​IMG]

    I'd give it a shot. We're expecting 3 EE's tomorrow from MPC.

    Of all of our EEs, I love Fluffyballs coloring. She's the prettiest white and black chicken! Enjoy the pics!

    Ok, I'll help out - I actually tried to get pics every week, for my own scrapbook and to choose in the future what they might turn out like. Attila, btw, I was hoping would be a hen - I had been calling "her" Cleo - because of the heavy "eyeliner" she had. Turned out to be a pretty roo - but he still thinks he's the "queen" of the yard.

    This is day old - the black one is a BA, the two on either side of him are Blue and Attila - both EE roos - their adult pics will follow.

    This is a closer pic of Blue.

    One week old, Blue and Attila are on the right.

    Two weeks old, Attila is the more yellow chick in the back, and Blue is the one getting white wings in the corner.

    This is Blue (back, right) at 5 weeks old.
    [​IMG]

    Blue last week - 21 weeks old

    Attila last week - 21 weeks old.

    Too funny, I kept saying that Lucy looked like Cleopatra because of her black eyeliner. She's become the screensaver on my phone! I'll have to take a new pic of Fluffyball and see what you think. I'm beginning to think that she is a he. Although Senor (who used to be Senorita) started crowing 2 weeks ago, and nothing out of Fluffyball yet.
