    So the chick I would like to know possible coloring outcome once she is fully feathered is the one on the left. My DW and I are trying to come up with a fitting name. The golden sex-link in the middle is "Amber" since that will be her primary color. I named the one on the right "Elphaba" for her green legs(Wicked reference). Please post pics of chicks you had with similar light chick coloring and also the adult coloring they grew into. Thanks

    My DW wants to name her "Peep", but I am not sold on it.

    First thing...are you SURE it is a pullet....most colorful EE chicks end up being roos and all of my chicks that color pattern have ended up being male. The buff one will most likely feather in either white or dark red.

    Well, unless the hatchery Wilco Farm Store buys from really messed up, the bin labeled EE pullets was 50/50 light and dark colored chicks. That is why I got one of each, color variety. Also the buff one is a Golden Sex-link, she will be mostly amber colored with white wing and tail feather tips.

    I am pretty sure Elphaba is a pullet. No red coloring at all in comb and she is feathering at the same rate as Peep and Amber(Gold Sex-liknk pullet).
