    Quote:I agree! She is beautiful! Do you have any pictures of that chicken as a chick? I suspect my EE may look like that grown.

    I have to agree to! That is the prettiest EE I think i have ever seen! [​IMG]

    I got them all from Meyers hatchery sold as Amerucaunas but they all throw different shades of blue to olive green eggs so I knew they were EE's. She however lays nice blues

  8. My two new chicks -- out of an order of 8 from Estes I got a gorgeous assortment. First one is almost all yellow with light V (wings are coming in white) and second is very blue. I'll update when they're older [​IMG]

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I have EE's and EE mixes, 3 weeks old now. Daddy is a EE

    here are some pics. I can't wait to see what colors they turn into. If anyone can hazard a guess, I would love some silver ones, like I've seen in this thread. some beautiful colors to be had for sure.

    baby from Queenie (SLW) and Marbles (daddy to all, yes indeed)

    Hoping she turns peach and is a girl (BO/leghorn/EE)

    [​IMG]

    one of the two last eggs that hatched, Ories (blue EE) baby

    mom is a Barnvelder color, crossed with a bantam of sorts perhaps. not quite sure exactly
