    ok so this is Eugene (the big one, fingers crossed that she is an olive egger 4 months old) and Biscuit (the small one no clue what she is 2 months old). we got Eugene from a breeder who told us she is an OE, but I have only seen barred OE on this site. Biscuit was in a grow out pen with several breeds, when she was a chick she looked like a sussex but not so much now. Any guesses on what breed they are?

    The first one looks like an Ameraucana cross, so if it would be a girl would likely produce green/blue tinted eggs. I think I see saddle feathers, but it's tough to tell for sure in the picture. The second one kind of looks like a Sebright cross. Is it a bantam?

    If the black bird is only 4 months, it's a cockerel. No doubt. Eugine is a male name as well.. [​IMG]

    I've got no clue on #2.

    your little one is a dark cornish pullet

    Your OE does look lanky and rooish, probly a Black Copper Maran/Ameraucana cross. very pretty
