Please tell me this isn't a bantam EE!! Any guesses on the age. I was told she was at least 8 weeks, but she looks nothing like my other 8 week old EE's.
She is beautiful. That said she has the same kind of neck feathers and fringe at the base of the tail that terrifies me that mine is a male. I absolutely refuse to put up pictures (they are 9.5 weeks now) because I don't want anyone to mess with my 'they are all girls' story.
Are those legs green? Sure looks like an EE.
En Plein Air Farms, are you saying that this could be a male as well?
4-H chicken mom, I believe her legs are a slate colored green. She was sold as an ameracauna (sp?)
My HUGE concern now is what age she looks to be and if she could be a bantam.
She's that partridge-ish/gold duck-wing-ish/not really any color a lot of easter egger hens are.
It's a pullet.
I can't help with size, no reference. If she's small, she may be a bantam. Or may just be a runt. Bantams are only about 1/5 the size of a large chicken. Some easter eggers are pretty light bodied.
I'm not great with age, but I'd agree she could be around 2 months old.
She is definitely an Easter Egger, we can't tell if she is Bantam or LF from that picture.
Here's an 8 week old (I think, maybe a bit younger) gold sex link to compare.
She is beautiful, why wouldn't you want a bantam EE pullet? That being said, while my EE roos are pretty large, my hens are really not that big of birds and very streamlined.
Yeah, I think she's a normal ee.
