    It's really hard to tell with EEs without knowing what the parentage is. I had three that looked alike as chicks and now all three are completely different colors. Not to mention all chicks and the puffy cheeks and only two out of the three have the muffs and beard. Here is a pic of the three that all looked alike as chicks. All three of them kind of looked like your chicks when they were younger.

    Thank you hopefully they will have the little muffins they are suppose to !! It didn't give an option of selecting what you wanted of course either way I think they are so adorable !

    Not a problem. I was really surprised that four out of my five had the muffs and beards. EEs are a really good breed to have, very friendly. Mine don't like being picked up any more, but still come running over to me hoping for a treat. Can't wait to see pictures of yours as they grow.

    X2 on that. I've raised EEs for many years (still have them) & have never been able to tell for sure what they will look like as adults. Good luck in getting the muffs you are hoping for.

    x3 To me that's the most fun thing about these little characters. I think the closest we can come to determining final color is with the bright yellow chicks. Some may have a splash of blue on them the but the basic color is yellow. Every single one I've seen that started out that color ends up being white or white with a splash of gold and/or blue, like my Agatha.
