    We got 2 chicks, ee's from Ideal. Here is a picture of one of them. She is lighter and grayish with some pattern, but nothing like the other one. What would you call this color?

    The thing with EE's are that they really don't have a specific color. You never know what they are going to look like. That is part of the fun with EE's. [​IMG]

    The top one is a lavender and the bottom is the brown-red.

    Do you have a picture of the top one when it was really little? I have 2 EE's an one looks brownish.

    They are EE colored! [​IMG] Like steffpeck said, EE's don't really have a color but I do have to say you have very pretty ones! Love all the different variations you get with EE's!

    Quote:I had one just like the light one and was told it cannot be a lavendar because it is an EE, that it was a blue, and blue comes in many shades, some are just lighter.

    Here is my light blue roo the same age:

    BTW, I have a three week old chick that looks like your hawk one. (I got it from Atwoods, which gets chicks from Ideal. ) So I will be watching this to see what my little hawk will look like!

    Here it is
    at 3 weeks
