    And yes, he looks like a fine example of an EE.

    the comb is right
    the coloring is good (wheaten? which I just love)
    the posture and the arch of his neck are right for an EE

    One of my EE's has gone broody and boy is she mean: she growls at any chicken that comes near her and she was pecking at me when I tried to see how many eggs she had! Now I just need to mark those eggs and let her cook'em! LOL!!

    I found some older pictures of one of my EEs and thought I'd share...

    This is her mama:

    [​IMG]

    No beard, muff-free, pea comb and a beautiful green egg layer. I lost her to a hawk. [​IMG]

    This is her as chick (she's on the left):

    I'm pretty sure daddy was a Speckled Sussex.

    This is her all grown up:

    No beard, muff-free, pea comb and doesn't even really look like a typical EE, but she lays very pretty green eggs.
