    Here are some updated pics of my EE's I got from MPC. They will be 5 weeks old on Sun or Mon. All are supposed to be pullets. It sure is hard to get them to stand still enough for a photo shoot. [​IMG]

    I sure love all the different colors of EE's you got.

    My Rainbow Specials turn 5 wks on Monday as well. The box mine came in said they were hatched at 5 am on Mon, Sept 21st.

    It still find it amazing that the chicks can hatch, are sexed, immunized (I paid for Mareks), put in a box and on a plane from Ohio to Seattle, road trip to my P.O the next day and all 26 they shipped are alive and well 5 wks later.

    Thanks for sharing pics. Keep us updated please.

    Mine did not say where they came from, only said MPC on the box. No paper work , nothing.

    So I did not know when they were hatched and just guessed on Sun or Mon. They did ship on a Mon. So do you think they hatched on monday too?​

    Starla, I ordered them from My Pet Chicken. They had a special for 25 pullets. I got all EE's, 26 in fact.

    These were the 8 I got to keep. I found good homes for all of the others. My son and I picked out 8 different looking ones so we might get a variety.

    I must say they change so much. They dont look anything like they did as newborn chicks.

    They say they only have a 90% gaurentee but so far I think all of mine are pullets. [​IMG]
