    these are my 2 fav chickens but i have no idea what they are.the first is one of the first 6 chicks i bought and was sold at TSC as an asst. red. she has turned out to be a beautiful bantam with curly feathers and feathered feet. she's about 6-8 weeks old and my very favorite.

    the second was bought at auction as an RIR but looks nothing like the other 4 that came with her.i'm guessing her to be between 6 and 9 weeks because she was bigger then my other chicks at first although they have caught up to be basically the same size.

    why is it if people dont know what it is they call it an ee/easter egger? [​IMG] yea I know they seem to be everywhere but most of the time they have olive colored legs and tuffs and pea combs... usually. And lay blue/green/pink eggs. Idk much( and im pry wrong) but I dont think shes an ee. Dont you think she looks like my dottie?

    ty very much all. the cochin has had me baffled she's my lil buddy lol. i kind of thought maybe EE mix on the second but really was just guessing although she does look a little like Dottie.
