    Easter Eggers have no specific name for their colorings they are a mutt breed that obtain their colors from mixes, many are cool looking but not true colors. Though I think that the second chick's feathering could look a bit like my EE Maple when she grows up:

    EEs do not have names for their colors. They are mutts. And you never really know what they will look like. 2 identical chicks could look compltley different as adults and vice versa.

    Agreed, I have seen EEs with the same colorings probably because they were crossed with the same kind of breeds.
