Well if anybody knows anything about EE's, it's that they are mixed breeds that lay a rainbow of colored eggs, can have muffs/beards, any comb, with a wide variation of plumage colors. We'll I have decided to try my luck at a somewhat standardized EE flock. I like the idea of a rainbow of egg colors and feather patterns, but I would like to standardize them to having beards/muffs, and pea combs. I will be adding different breeds as I go to keep a diverse plumage pattern and egg colors while trying to keep a pea comb and beard/muffs. Leg color does not to much matter to me as I think it just adds to the color difference. I would like to stay away from feathered legs and crests. I would like to keep the chickens at about the same size visually. I would also like to acquire a mottled rooster such as a speckled Sussex. To add the mottling gene to my flock. This is my rooster right know I have a number of EE's right know which are all bearded except for one but her baby's should be bearded a good bit because my roo is bearded, as a matter of fact I think all of the next generation will have a decent size beard. Please feel free to chime in and tell me your thoughts. I will try to get some pics tomorrow. And my roo and his hatch mates will be 10 weeks old nov. 3 2014. Also feel free to post pics of your EE's. And with god by my side maybe I can get this project going.
