    Especially Chernobyl-who is black with silver markings and rust colored dusting on her head-what color EE would they be considered? I cant find a ee that color anywhere

    EE's have no real color they are a mutt breed and colors are obtained by crosses, but you create different colors for them. [​IMG]

    I have two bantam EE's and one is a beautiful mottled Grey like marble and the other is a mixture of reds, browns and yellows like beautiful granite.

    They both have grey beards. I thought they would be the same and it was such a fun surprise.

    For the most part, EEs will be either brown and black, or black and white. They may have other colors mixed in, but those are the two most common that I have seen. My one exception was a brown and white LACED EE. She turned out incredibly pretty!

    The easiest way to really tell what color they will be, is to look at what colors are on their wing feathers now. That's pretty much what they will be when they get older. I've never seen an EE completely change color as it grew.
