    Maybe Donte is a bantam EE?

    As far as the turkens I dont know, but if they havent crowed maybe they are all hens?

    EE as in easter egger, right? I didn't think they were bantams [​IMG]

    no one has crowed yet, not even a pathetic starter one.

    the Turkens were male packing peanuts, but we were starting to get hopeful that a few might be hens.

    I wish i could keep them all, I love them to death but future MIL says no [​IMG]

    Awe [​IMG] Well if any of them dont have pointy feathers by their tails, than keep that one(s).

    That lavender does look kinda DUccleish too, but it doesnt have any leg feathers, which DUccles have.
     
  8. Aww, I am sorry. [​IMG] I really am. I wish that the roosters laid! I love the crowing and the beautiful feathers. [​IMG] So sorry. [​IMG]


    Oh yeah EE (easter eggers) do come in bantam sizes. [​IMG]
