    Probably something light tan or beige in color. Probably something close to the wheaten color.

    Most of us are either at work or outside doing farm chores right now - patience. [​IMG]

    I don't have a before and after picture for you. Since EE's vary so much in appearance from one bird to another, it would be difficult to find a picture of exactly what it would look like as an adult. It looks like it will be a light color though. Try looking through the Easter Egger page on www.feathersite.com for pictures of all of the color variations.

    Um, yeah... I had one that started out a light chipmunk:

    and at 3 weeks, she turned into this:

    She's now 5 weeks and her head feathers are in; her head is bright orange too. Just goes to show you that a beige chick doesn't necessarily equal beige adult. You'll also note that my chick's wings had much more black and much less orange than yours is showing. I'm going to guess that your chick will be a mostly coppery orange adult with some black markings.
