    I thought I would post some pics of my newly hatched EE babies... I can honestly say that I have NEVER had a cuter clutch of fluffy butts!! [​IMG]

    I put these in the bator with the intention of hatching them for someone to buy but I think I'm gonna have to keep some now!!

    (keepin these 2 for sure:

    Not everyone's idea of "perfect" EE's but they're great layers...

    The hens are americauna X layer hen crosses. Some have the EE comb while other's held on to their mommas comb styles & a couple lack the beard(but dinky obviously did a good job of passing that on, lol)
