    I bought 12 EE's last Saturday. I have since lost four pretty rapidly in the last 2 days. The rest look great. 3 are starting to get white tip feathers on their wings. 2 of theses are yellow chicks, so I expected white. The third is a grayish, touch of yellow,& brown/red, so white wing tips surprised me a bit.[​IMG]

    EE's can turn colors as they get adult plumage. Have you determined why the others died?

    I actually ended up loosing 5. The remaining 7 are doing fantastic. Zipping around like they are running a race. I did not figure out why the others died. Calling the lady I got them from tomorrow to see if she lost any of the ones that were left. Since I lost so many she may replace them.

    I did know that the color changes as they grow. That is one of the great things about EE's.
