    I honestly don't know if they are just EE's or pure Ameracanas... but that's okay, I don't really care... I just want blue and green eggs. [​IMG]
    Any idea what these guys will look like?

    Chick1
    This was the only buff/light yellow colored one with faint chick camo stripes... I grabbed her xD

    Chick2
    This one has big dark blotchies all over her head, and clearly defined saddle.

    Chick3
    This one is sooo pretty, light wheat color with sharply defined chick camo.

    Chick4
    Right now I'm calling her "blur" in my head because her chick camo is softer and blendier.

    Chick5
    The little "darkie". It's a dark chocolate one and the down seems almost liver/blue.

    Chick #2 looks just like my EE chick when it was young. Cant say for the rest of them, but I LOVE the furball at the end!

    Yeah, I was pretty sure they were EE chicks, but what colors will they likely be when all growed up? [​IMG]

    Those are all Easter Eggers, so really, you're just going to get a bunch of girls or boys with shades of brown, black, and possibly white or blue (gray) [​IMG]

    The first is likely a silver duckwing or a pyle type color

    All the rest are duckwing based colors, meaning if male they'll be black and gold or black and red, if female they'll mostly be brown.

    Oh, I hope they're blue-ish. (probably not, but, I can hope).

    Hah, my dad took me to the local co-op (in Marysville, not Monroe) to look at chick feeders for when they get bigger (because we suffered with a modified milk gallon last time), and they had like 100 RIRS and PR/BRs. We got 2 RIRs.

    Okay... I just gotta avoid the co-ops for a WHOLE MONTH so I can still have room for my giant blue cochins, welsummers and black copper marans (maybe some penedesencas too!)

    Chick #1 looks like one of my chickens when she was younger. She turned out being black, golden, a little red, yellow, and white. Shes so pretty! I have a white EE and a blue one too. Your chicks are so cute though, no matter what color they will be when their older [​IMG]

    That is a very hard question to answer at those ages. Most of your darker ones are going to probably be some form or partridge/quail colors of brown/red/rust/orange. Chick 1 may very well be white or mostly white I had two her color and they are completely white. The mostly yellow w/ some colored spots may be mostly white w/ some color. The one you called blur I believe looks like it may have white highlights instead of tan. But those are guesses, it's a waiting game and that's the fun of it!!!
