She's the one in the middle.
Very hard to tell with EE's. They look totally different as chicks than they do adults.
Yes, I agree with acid_chipmunk. My first three EE chicks looked like chipmunks when they were hatched.
The top left chick is from my EE hen:
Here is that chick two weeks ago:
All 3 of the first ones pretty much look the same:
Here is the last one, it hatched last nite:
Here is the mom to all 4 chicks:
Here is the dad to all 4:
It's too early to tell on the chick.
All three of those black and white birds are cockerels. They are carrying in the silver gene and it is expressed in certain ways on males and females, so I am pretty certain they are males.
Pips, thank you. I was pretty sure of that, which is why I am excited about the coloring of the last one. I wanted at least one pullet from that cross. I know that all my BR I crossed with the same roo the males barred and the females are black. All the RIR and PR I crossed with him are colored like him, males and females alike. So, I got alot of males, lol, which is ok. had planned on processing males, keeping hens for eggs. I have become fascinated with the outcome of colors, tho and have been trying to learn more in that area.
