    He (we assume he) is about 4 weeks old, and looked like a little striped chipmunk for the longest time. Greenish legs.

    He looks just like some of my EE's... These 2 are 3 weeks and 2 days old... They both ended up looking like yours at 4 weeks... I just can't find a picture!!!

    Looks like an EE to me also.
    Of course I have only limited experience as a chicken noob. I don't think it is a he though.

    If he's an EE, will I ever be able to tell, since I won't have eggs to judge by? If he is, I may just let him set up camp with the beautiful EE hens I got from ilovemychicks9. If he's a Phoenix, surely someone would want him when he's of age?

    He was WAY fuzzier than any other chick I've had--downright "fluffy" for the first couple of weeks. He looked like a chicken that had been in the dryer! [​IMG]

    I agree. Looks like an EE pullet to me.​
