    Thank you! I guess time will tell with Beauty and Zaxby. Thanks about our silkie! He/she is soooo cute and sweet

    I am guessing all EE except for the two that you think are Lavender Orps they look like they could be and ofcourse the cute little silkie. Do the Orps have single combs or is it just flat or only slightly raised like a pea comb?

    What a beautiful Lavender! Is it a hen or rooster? Yours is way more brilliantly colored than Mrs. Potts. And you are right, Beauty and Zaxby look different. I'll check the combs real quick on those two.

    Ok, Mrs Potts and Beauty appear to have a single comb (I'm new to this) and Zaxbys looks more flat to me and pea like. Also, Zaxbys wing feathers are coming in bright white. I'll attached comb photos of the 3.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Looks like Beauty is Lavender Orp or maybe blue? Zaxby is an EE, maybe she'll turn into a pretty splash one. Did you get them from a breeder?
