I am trying to figure out a "surprise egg" It was a large brown egg. The chick is very large, reddish color, with nice big muffs, darker stripe down the back, no eye stripe. I don't know if there is anything besides ee/ameraucanas that have those muffs. I tried to look it up and I got 7 pages of the ee/ameraucana debate. Of course, it could from an ee daddy. Anyway, I thought I'd ask.
