Two Rescue Chicks taken in and I don't know sex or breed. HELP?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am hoping you all can help me in discovering the breed and sex of these 9-10 week old babies. These chicks were brought to me because the owner found out that they are can't have chickens legally. ARggh for them but a blessing for me. He was not sure of the breed and I am hoping that they are both female. First let's look at the light colored one.

They both appear to be pullets. The lighter of the two might be a Salmon Favorelles (maybe a mix or hatchery quality since there aren't many feathers on the legs and feet). Not sure about the other.

both pullets :)

 

The first one is a Salmon Faverolles. I can't see the second one well enough to guess at breed. Could be something like a Welsummer?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
