I've got two babies that look like they'll be white. One is the typical chipmunky EE looking baby, and the other is a dark chestnut/red. I am excited to watch how they turn out as they feather in.

Anyone have an EE that started out like this dark one? What color did it turn out? Do you have a pic?

Thanks!

One of my EEs, Molly, is pretty dark. I got her at two weeks old, so she already most of her wings feathers in at that point, but she is was really dark, except her head was more of tan color that your dark EE chick has under her beak. Your girl might be darker all over and not have the gold on the head/neck like my Molly does.

Ur chick looks like my Beatrix!!! She is seven weeks old! She will be brown and off gray barred on the back, undersides, wings, and lower breast. Then, she will have a GORGEOUS buff gold head and a creamy breast with the occasional barring! Trust me, Bea was just like yours!!
