    What cuties! 1st one is probably an EE. My silver ameraucanas have more defined "V", coloring on their heads, almost as pronounced as a welsumer's "V". My EEs looked like that as chicks though and they are mostly brown feathered with some dark charcoal and some beige coloring as well. But EEs can be many colors at maturity. The second one does look like a buff orp but a lot of chicks have that deep yellow coloring at birth. Will be a lot easier to tell what they are when they get older.
    What I'm sure they are is adorable!!! Good luck with them. [​IMG]

    Quote:No, I don't think you can sex Rocks when they're chicks. ( Besides vent sexing! lol )
    You'll have to wait until they're 4 to 5 months old. [​IMG]
