    HI, meet Lea ( as in in princess lea)[​IMG]

    so wanted your thoughts. This is a two week old bantam EE. Came from a blue egg. Father was a cochin silkie mix and mom was an ee. It is 2 weeks old. it was one of the first in my mix of chicks to get a tail. It has a slight comb also. Most overall feathers early compared to others. When born it was yellow with chipmunk pattern. Now has a cool color pattern that I am guessing will look splashy.[​IMG] White silkie that is 3 week is behind her. Have you seen this pattern on hens? In theory, I have heard that most white colored EE tend to be roos.

    Now 4 week old with a rose type comb coming in. She has beautiful colors and great feathered hocks... but her comb is getting bigger so not sure now if boy or girl. Really want this to be a girl. Any thoughts. [​IMG][​IMG]
