    Her and her friend were just the cutest black and grey puffballs when we bought them! Lol. They're about 3 weeks old now. One has a straight comb and one is maybe developing a pea comb.

    Is the straight comb one an Easter egger???

    EEs do not have single combs. They have pea combs.
    I’m not exactly sure what breed but they are pretty!

    The straight comb one looks like an Easter Egger to me. Easter Eggers can have single combs, I used to have one myself. Have a great day and God Bless!

    Actually, there is no standard for ee and while pea combs are most prevalent, single combs can/do occur due to the genetics involved.

    Many Easter Eggers are sold as Ameracuana's, has happened to me too many times to count.

    Easter eggers, and both may be cockerels.
