    Quote:Wow! Did you post that on the Wyandotte thread? I think I read that not too long ago. We have had a double yolker from our SLW too but much smaller yolks (ova) than the EE. Pretty amazing little girls we have here.

    Here's a few of my girls. They're 7 wks old now. Unfortunately, I didn't get pics when I got them. I ordered 7 pullets. 3 had chipmunk markings and now two look like this...
    [​IMG]
    and one like this
    [​IMG]

    One was similar to the chipmunk marked ones but her markings weren't as defined and she had very dramatic Cleopatra eye markings and now looks like this...
    Cleo
    [​IMG]

    One was smoky grey/brown, very pretty and turned into this...
    Eva
    [​IMG]

    Two were solid white and turned into these...
    Ava
    [​IMG]

    and Zsa Zsa (not the best pic but she's still solid white)

    akpeeps - Love the variety you got, especially the pullets in photos #4-6. They are all very pretty girls.
