    I ordered dark Cornish and speckled Sussex. He's definitely, obviously, not either of those breeds. [​IMG] What do you think?

    I'd guess EE as well, what with the feather pattern and the eyeliner. Where did you order from?

    My Pet Chicken. Awful experience so far. [​IMG] He has a single comb and no puffy cheeks.

    Here's the other one I'm not sure on. I'm guessing he's supposed to be a dark Cornish, but he's obviously crossed with something else.

    I really don't think the first one is an EE! Any other ideas?

    I really don't think the first one is an EE. Can you get some pics of them from the side, the whole chicken so we can see the body more.

    I'm pretty sure he/she isn't an EE, too. I'm at work (been here since 6 AM!) but I'll try to get more pics this evening when I get home. Have to pick up the kids, get dinner started etc, etc, so usually the light is bad by the time I make it to the chicken care portion of my day, but I can bring some chicks into the house for picture time if needed.

    The first one is not an EE, I see a single comb there.


    Not sure what though honestly.

    They didn't send any extras, but it looks like the 2 substitutions (that they didn't substitute, according to them, I got exactly whatI ordered) are both boys. [​IMG]

    Sorry his head is a little blurry in this one. He definitely has a single comb. Maybe it's a she, but it has one of the bigger combs of the group. Not as big as the leghorns or Andalusians, but as big as the Sussex cockerels.
