    This is one of the 2 easter eggers I just got, the other is striped the same way but with much darker fluff, I already have an idea of what the other one will look like but I was curious if anyone here knew about this one? Her head is a yellowish and her body is like a beige grey with the brown stripe. Her wings are a very light grey too.
    (I really didn't know what thread to put this is in, I'm sorry in advance if it's not right.)

    This is what a red jungle fowl chick looks like:

    I know it’s an Easter egger but that chick and these look very similar except for the darker colors. I was going to say when it matures it will look something like a red jungle fowl but the colour of the wing feathers are already completely different to these.

  3. You'll just have to watch it's wing feathers since they grow the fastest. I had 2 chicks that looked exactly like yours here and they both grew up to be totally different colors :gigone looked dark brown with gold neck feathers and speckled wings, the other turned white with black stripes and spots! So it's quite the fun game guessing what they'll look like :)

    That's kinda what I figured and hope she turn's out to be! I picked her out because of that assumption. I'll be a little upset if she changes into something totally different but oh well lol
