    I'm so glad to see some pics of grown hens that look just like mine as babies! I picked the ones w/ the smallest flattest combs out of the SR EE bin, but out of my 5 4-5 week olds, I thought I had 4 boys! LOL. Nice to see there's still hope! Some of your girls looked like they had the wide flat comb some of mine have and in the "what breed/sex" forum, I was told they're boys b/c of that. Maybe not!

    6 weeks

    now at 9 weeks(debated weather she's a hen or roo)

    cutest pic!

    and this is my coop, you like it?

    I have a black and white EE that looks almost exactly like yours! I, too, am debating whether Lavender is a pullet or cockerel. His/her tail sticks almost straight up unlike my other EE pullet's tail. I'm pretty sure I saw he/she breeding with one of the pullets. He/ she is only seven weeks old. Do dominant pullets do this???? Why must EE's be so confusing? [​IMG]

    I REALLY like your coop. You did a really good job on it. [​IMG]

    I adore my EE chickens. They are so much fun. Here's some pics. There's a SLW mixed in with the bunch.

    Here's mine at about a week old:
    [​IMG]

    They were probably 3-4 weeks old here:
    [​IMG]

    This was around 6-7 weeks:
    [​IMG]

    They're around 3 months old here:
    [​IMG]

    Then around 7 or 8 months:
    [​IMG]

    This one is of Lucky, taken just last week, she'll be a year old this week:
    [​IMG]


    And lastly, a couple eggs. I'm not sure who lays what, just that two lay a nice olive color, one lays a seafoam greenish blue. The last one sometimes lays seafoam color, other times kind of a tan color.

    Well, in my last post we sadly lost two of our Ameraucana last night. So heartbreaking. They were 7 weeks old. I can't talk about them or I'll cry so let's talk about the new ones. [​IMG]

    Sorry that some were camera shy!

    By pure fate I'm sure of it, the feed store had a big assortment of Ameraucana chicks (this late in the year...meant to be!) I went to get two to replace the ones we lost, but left with 4...and a silkie. Chicken Math!

    Starting on the right, the EE's are # 1,2,3 and 6. Look at my poor little d"Uccles. We don't have the heart to tell them they are not as big as the others! lol You would never know though, they hold their own.
    [​IMG]

    My favorite new EE. Like a baby with chubby cheeks. Love it!! She's got a nice cinnamon and white color on her wings. Should be really pretty as a hen. Any advice for the fur that keeps getting in her eyes? Sometimes it's straight up and like touching her eyes. Seems to bother her. I have brushed it down a ton today...keeps standing back up.
