    Hello!!! I got 5 birds, and I thought she was going to be a Buff Brahma (that's what I ordered). I guess this isn't true? What does she look like? A leghorn?
    Thanks so much for your help!

    Also, she's much bigger than the other 4 chicks we got (Easter Eggers, Cuckoo Maran, and Polish)....

    Hi and [​IMG] She doesn't look like a leghorn and most likely isn't if she is larger than your other chicks. Are her legs greenish? She could be a white Easter Egger. I have one and she is beautiful! [​IMG]

    Oh my gosh!!! Thank you so much!
    I got 2 EEs and I thought that they were the two brownish ones (they looked so similar as chicks) and assumed the white chick was the Buff Brahma... Now I realize that Miss Brisbee is the Buff Brahma and Popcorn is the other EE! My world has been turned upside down, but looking at Miss Brisbee's feathered feet confirms it!
    How interesting--I can't wait to see what they're like in a couple months!

    Congratulations! You will love your white EE. I was confused as well when I first opened the shipping box and saw two light colored chicks. I knew I had a New Hampshire, but what was the other one? Then I saw the green legs! [​IMG]
    Here is what Popcorn will look like in a few months. [​IMG]
