    All 11 chicks are about 7 weeks old. 5 are red, 3 are white, and 3 are black. I chose one from each to show so we can figure out what they are.

    They look like what I bought from TSC as Americanas. Were they like little chipmunks as babies?

    You think they are all EE's? I really dont care, just wondering what color eggs Im going to have. Also Out of the 11 I got from the farm, 5 are Roos. The black pictured is a Roo, the white picutred is a roo but I cant figure out what happened to his comb, why its small and looks like to combs side by side. and three of the 5 red ones are roos.

    I have 3 ees that do not have greenish legs. They're yellow. Two started out yellow, are now white and there's black coming through. They were labeled at tsc as americaunas. Fat chance...they're ees.(mine) I'm still new but I don't know any breeds that have colors so mixed like those do...besides EEs. Maybe somebody else knows more:confused:

    I got them from a farm. The lady told me " This is a farm, I dont know when they were born, what they are, and they lay brown and white eggs ". If I go by the parents and she was telling me the truth about white and brown, I thought they couldnt be ee's. Do ee's only lay colored eggs?

    It sounds like the farm has a mixed flock of laying breeds. Your birds are probably mixes of the different breeds. The red one looks like it's feathering in with mille fleur coloring. Pretty birds!
