Hi! I hatched about 70 chicks this past Friday. WHOA! Fuzz overload! Most of them are Easter Eggers crossed with a chicken soup of genetics - Australorp, Comet, RIR, even Turken! There is supposedly some Silkie and Cochin in there, but I've seen no fuzzy feet. Anyway, there are some interestingly colored chicks, and I wondered if anyone had a guess as to what their adult color might be.

BTW, I do know that the black chicks will be black, the yellow ones will be white, and the red ones will be red. :) I had gotten that far on my own! The variously colored chipmunk chicks, however, have me curious!

I ordered them from My Pet Chicken. I am so happy with their fluffy cheeks and great personalities, but I think they are both laying and no green eggs

With EE you really can't tell what they are going to look like until they grow up. They change so much over the weeks it is crazy.

Here are my three:
Monroe (lays a mint green egg)

Mid fluffy, she really isn't that fluffy but you can see her colors real well
