the EE's will have chipmunky markings and/or puffy cheeks with kohl markings around the eyes.

they also may already have some grey on the legs/feet.

have fun with your new chicks!

Yes and this year people are starting to see a lot of EE chicks that are not chipmunk marked. I was stoked when I found some at my feed store-just had to pick two up!

The feed store may also call them "Ameraucanas".

Most will be chipmunk striped... but some will be white/yellow or other mixed shades/patterns of brown.

Here's a good example of what a lot of 'green' legs look like while they are very young.
