    Just thought I'd share pics of my EEs. I love them!
    My rooster, Sparkle (we were hoping he was a she when we named him). The breeder had Ameraucanas and Sparkle is a splash. His legs are the wrong color and is coloring is off, so he's an EE.

    I had a broody hen hatch out four eggs. Sparkle is my only roo, so they're EEs. Two pullets and two roos.
    I think three of them were from my Australorp hen, since all three are grey of some sort.
    The most obvious boy, and he hatched first.

    His sister has no muffs, but she has the most beautiful huge Australorp eyes ever.

    Boy #2 and Girl #2. Boy must have been from my Production Red hen. He is absolutely gorgeous. Girl has the best muffs and big black eyes.

    I bought these two when I thought Obvious was going to be the only one to hatch out.

    The brown one has a cross beak. I think the blue is absolutely gorgeous.

    This beauty was doing her job enjoying a yummy grasshopper.

    I really love my EEs. [​IMG]

    Quote:Y'all are so sweet! Thank you! I love their muffs, too!

    No, the white with black spots is a silver spangled hamburg, not an EE. She's the only one in the pics that isn't an EE. I have a few more EE that aren't pictured. One of the older ones started laying a lovely pale olive egg this week. I love it!

    I bought three white EE babies last spring. One turned out to be a beautiful buff and white EE with huge muffs. The other two were pure white and were predator food this fall. Made me so mad.

    I love EEs. When I pick out babies, I try to find the oddest coloring combination I can. I've gotten some interesting birds doing that. [​IMG]
