    Easter Eggers, look to be about 7-10 days old, at this point I'd say both pullets, but that's just going by the tail development.

    I've never seen those kind of fish before. LOL

    But seriously, they would be Easter Eggers if they came from a feed store, not Americanas. Feedstores usually get their chicks from hatcheries and hatcheries falsely call them Americanas, but Americanas have APA recongnized colors and lay bright blue eggs, Easter Eggers can any color and lay blueish/green and pink eggs. I'd say they're 2-3 wks old.

    It's not going to be a Buff Sussex if it came from a feed store and with that color, there's no way it's a RIR. They are EEs !!!!!!!!!!

    I'm new to chickens but these look EXACTLY like my EE chicks did at 2 weeks. (Mine are 4 1/2 weeks now)
    I also got mine at a feed store and they called them Americanas.[​IMG]
