    Well I picked up a pullet that was a packing peanut in the feed store's order, I'm sure she is a pullet because all the chickens were marked even the extras. I'm guessing she's an EE, but not sure. Can someone tell me what she will look like grown? If it helps she is from Cackle. Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    I'm not sure, but her legs don't look like the right color to be an EE.

    Quote:I agree. Looks like an EE to me, and a pretty one, too.

    That's what I though, aren't there different colors like with Ameracaunas?

    Yeah, but they could look like anything, instead of having 'standard' colors.

    EE - sometimes the leg color isn't the typical color but as they get older they turn more green. Looks like she'll have a creamy beard and have the brown/black/gold coloring on the rest of her. I had a couple just like her that have grown out that way. Hopefully she'll keep the beard.

    EE. They are crosses, so they can have any color legs.

    She looks a lot like my EE's from Mt. Healthy--they were all little variations of puffy cheek chipmunk stripes. I had one w/ yellow legs in the batch. And you would not believe the color assortment they've grown into at 5 1/2 weeks--so can't help on the adult color. But, she's cute!
