    This is my sweet Daisy. Arrived from MM on april 6. At first< I thought she was one of the Deleware we ordered, but she only has one small black dot on her head and her legs aren't yellow. She is smaller than the other EEs and Deleware we have and her comb is turning red. She also likes to fly onto to things (i.e. my shoulders) more than any of the others. Any ideas? Oh, yeah, is she really a "she"?

    Looks like an EE to me. "He" is lacking the muffs and beard, but the green legs are a dead giveaway.

    So my sweet Daisy is actually a Davey. Are you sure?

    Yes, she is a he. Sorry. EEs and Ameraucanas do not get red in their combs this early. And the comb is very wide like an EE cockerel.

    OK, people, I'm gonna have to go to bed soon. Are the rest of my babies boys or girls? I think I'll sleep much better if I know.[​IMG]
