    I bought these two girls from a trusted feed store as Easter Eggers. They're so different it's amazing! Masala (white one) is almost double the size of Tikka (orange one) but they're the best of friends. I'm just curious if anyone can figure out what the heck they are!

    They look almost like Hawks or Kites to me [​IMG]

    That's hilarious - we've said the exact same thing. Masala especially looks like part hawk. We'll eventually take a picture of her on a wrist with a leather glove looking like she's ready to launch.

    Your Tikka looks just like our Cleopatra did:

    How old are your chicks? Is Masala's comb identical to Tikka's comb (size & color)?

    They're 7 weeks old and the combs are the same size (non-existant). You're right - Tikka does look like Cleopatra!
    Masala was a little bit bigger as a baby but she's just outpaced Tikka it's amazing. The other day Tikka was taking a snooze on Masala's back.

    Masala has a feather ridge on the back of her neck - you can kind of see it in the photo. She almost has hackles.

    WOW - she's going to be GORGEOUS. I had no idea she'd be that lovely.
    I just went and looked in on them (they're still in the bathroom - going outside today) and they have pinky/red comblets. I swear they weren't there yesterday.
    Now anyone have any ideas about Masala - she's going to be huge I think. And she does look part hawk or eagle.
