    I had thought that 2 of these chicks were EE's, but I'm really not sure. These are pics of 4 "chipmunk" chicks that I'm trying to identify. I ordered EE's, Welsummers, Buttercups, Speckled Sussex which are my KNOWN "chipmunk" types, but I also ordered the "Ornamental Layer Collection" which adds in others that I can't name.

    Any guesses as to what any of these are?

    EEs and Welsummers is my guess.

    YAY! Someone posted a pic of a black and white EE before that was so gorgeous she left me hoping to get so lucky. I got my hopes up on that one and then began doubting I really got so lucky LOL It really doesn't matter what they are, we will love them to bits regardless, but I feel like I wished hard enough and won the life lottery or something right now! There were only 5 survivors of my order of 38 chicks, so we definitely won with all of them, this just makes my heart smile which I really, REALLY needed today! We already have a Wheaton EE and she's sweet as sweet can be.
