I truly appreciate the EE thread, but I can't seem to find my answers in looong threads when I can finally sit down by my computer and log in. So I am posting Donna's photo here, hoping somebody can tell me how she's coming along, she's MAYBE starting to pink up around her face, MAYBE thinking about laying an egg, she hatched in early June. If she lays a green or bluish egg, I wonder if I could qualify to have a show chicken? If her egg is buff, would she still be able to join a club or show? Her dad's a silkie, her mom was sold to us as an Americauna. Mom lays buff eggs. Dad's sister lays white eggs. Donna's ears are bright blue. She's a love: Here she is with her mom, even though mom just moulted her beard is where Donna got hers: ...except Donna also has some tufty ear wingie things which wrap around her head. Donna is SO BLACK, even her feet and legs are black, I photoshopped the contrast, tint and brightness just to be able to see her features on these photos! Her eyes are dark, dark brown. She is a LOVE, I tell you. She knows her name and hops up onto my arm (too heavy to land in my hand) for talks and treats. She's funny and curious and smart, like most EE's. Does she qualify as a true EE?
