    So when I got my chicks, I got what I thought were 3 EE's, 3 BO's, 2 SLW's, and 3 RIR's. My 2 RIR's are red. One of my easter egger's is all yellow, but with the green legs and puffy cheeks. The other ones have similar markings to this one except this one does not have the chipmunk cheeks, is not feathering out as fast, and it has pink legs. Is there a possibility it is a different breed chick?

    I got them from my local feed store's chick day. They came from Ideal Hatchery.
     
  6. I'm going to step out on a limb and say that is indeed an EE. I have one that looks like that (no puffs, face is the same, etc).

    Well, the RIR bin had these ones mixed in. I just assumed it was an EE because it looked like the other ones. Now that they are getting bigger, you can tell it's different. This one has a sprouting comb and the 3 other EE's do not. This one has pink feet and they have green feet. I guess I will see in a couple months!
