    Maybe Phoenix?
    They have green legs, both have the same shape to the "eye makeup"

    And am I right thinking this is a roo? Bigger comb than the other and it is starting to turn pink

    It does appear to be a girl and a boy, but I am not sure on the breed. I'm not familiar with phoenix, so couldn't say for sure.

    The one that appears to be a hen looks just like my EE chicks that are just now feathering out. Are the legs green? Not sure on the second on.

    The second one is Eygyptian Fayoumi. I am hoping to have a hen and a roo
    The first one I have 2 of also and have had several different guesses as to what the heck they are. I guess I'll just have to wait till they get all their adult feathers!

    That is EXACTLY what mine look like! WooHoo! Now if only one of them is a roo...... Have to make sure they have nice high roosts so the tail won't get broken off.
