    I have two mystery chicks from Meyer. Everyone in the breeds and gender ID section thinks they might be EE's. If you have pictures of EE chicks you've gotten from there, could you share?

    Did they look anything like this one? She's not bearded or muffed.

    I'm very curious to know what she might look like when feathered out.

    Those legs make me think EE for sure! While EEs are generally beared and muffed, they don't have to be. They can be any assortment of colors (from my understanding). They just have to lay colored eggs. While Ameraucana's and Araucana's are true breeds. EEs are a mix of the above breeds and who knows what else. Great birds and great layers! I looked for pics of mine when they were chicks, but can't find them (they have a lot more gold on them anyway). [​IMG] Sorry!

    She is adorable! She will be one beautiful hen!

    EE's happen to be one of my favorite breeds, so I'm a little excited to see what she feathers out to look like! I've never seen an EE with these colors before. And there is the egg color surprise too. I have my fingers crossed for blue eggs.

    Disclaimer--This is NOT my hen, as you can see. But 3 of 5 of my chicks from MMM last year grew up to look like her: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=148858

    One
    of the others was black with bright brown feathers on the neck, and the other one is buff.

    Interestingly, all of the ones I got this year from Meyer hatchery look like they will be blue.
