    Gotta say I love that bottom picture. He's looking over at the black chicken behind him with it's hackles all fluffed up at the roo on the other side. Kinda like "Really now, you can't do anything through that fence you know."

    What makes you think he's an EE? I'm just curious because I don't see EE at all except for the comb type maybe.
