Hello chicken friends! My family just got our second flock going. We have 6 pullets (2 gold sex link, 2 Columbian Wyandottes, 2 big all grey ones ?) and we picked two out of the assorted bantam bin at TSC. The employee said the ones with the heaviest eyeliner were more likely to be pullets.
I’m pretty sure the first one is a silver duckwing pullet based on her salmon breast. The second one is much smaller and I have no idea. OEGB or Welsummer? He/she is SO tiny compared to the other bantam and the full sized chicks. Two pics are when we got them at 1 week old and the other pics are from today, almost 6 weeks old.

I think it's a Black Breasted Red OEGB. At the moment it's looking like a girl, but just watch for black feathers developing in the next couple of weeks. The eye stripe isn't always a guarantee as it is something that needs to be bred for.

Here's our BBR girl at a month old:

And this is her with her brother who is a Golden Duckwing:

He was a lot smaller than her. They are now the same size though at 5 months old. As you can see his chest doesn't show any black but by 6 weeks he had developed dark splotches on his chest and wings:

I do think your other one is definitely a girl with her pretty salmon chest.
