    First of all I know they are too young right now but I thought it might help to show some development along the way. I'm also wildly curious about how my Easter Eggers are going to turn out. I'm going to post this then grab my phone and put up pics. Right now I have two Bearded d'uccles, three easter eggers, and three mottled cochins that are unsexed. I have one standard easter egger girl I think. She was in a mystery bin as a girl, identified as a standard and looks just like my easter eggers.

    You are right. Right now they are way too young to tell. But they are adorable! d'Uccles and Easter eggers are some of my favorite breeds.
    Keep us posted. I'd like to see them grow up!

    Some of these girls I tell apart by head marks right now and they aren't all showing in the pics. My d'uccle shave very different wing colors now too.

    Ok here are their two week old shots from yesterday [​IMG]
    [​IMG] olive, Easter egger.
    [​IMG] pearl easter egger, she has the whitest feather edges.
    [​IMG] faith, mottled Cochin seems suspicious , early developer?
    [​IMG] Hazel d'uccle
    [​IMG] Flora, d'uccle has more black in her feathers right now.
    [​IMG] Ida Easter egger
    [​IMG] grace, mottled Cochin. Grace's development is a few days behind. She had splay leg and had to wear a hobble but is recovered now.
    [​IMG] fern, Easter egger? Standard, girl
    [​IMG] Hope, mottled Cochin. Has more black on her right wing.

    I included Fern because Easter egger is my guess for breed even though I know she has been identified as a standard size girl her feathers are a pale grey and I can't wait to see how she turns out. If it doesn't show we'll in the pics she has very furry cheeks.

    Too young to sex. Fern is probably an Easter Egger.

    You think Fern is an Easter egger. Thanks, I'm glad I got that much right. I'll wait longer for more pics. It's hard to wait to find out. I want lots of girls but will keep one Roo.

    Three weeks old now. The ee's are still getting feathers and not showing any head colors or combs so I'll share the Cochins.
    [​IMG] Faith is the biggest and has had pink in the comb for a week now. Faith is the biggest and most developed. Hope seems a few days behind Faith in feather development no pink in comb. Grace is smaller and way less feathered. She/he had splay leg and the recovery time set things back.

    I don't know the sexes yet so everyone gets a girl name until I hear otherwise. [​IMG]

    Ack, this morning my smallest Mottled Cochin's comb went pink. Hope the only one still white combed may be my only hope of a hen. I'll post update pics next week for your thoughts.
