    Hi everyone,
    I ordered 10 EEs, 10 Buff Orpingtons, and 5 Brown Leghorns from McMurray 2 weeks ago. I thought they had miscounted the Buffs b/c I had 13 of them and only 8 EEs (they all look like chipmunks). Now, I think maybe that some of the chicks that look like Buffs are indeed EEs. Their legs turned greenish over night like the EEs and their cheeks are a little more tufted. What do you think?

    I think my surprise is the picture in my 2nd "Please ID" post this morning. I think it is an EE roo. It is much larger and more aggressive than the others all of a sudden. Because of the blonde buxom appearance, we had named her Dolly (Parton). Guess we may have to work on a new name now!

    Do the blonde EEs end up being speckled or do they typically remain solid? I have only raised chipmunk EEs before. They all ended up black and gold and lay blue and green eggs. We adopted an adult EE that was solid white. She lays pink eggs. She's a real beauty.
