Hello
My broody hen hatched 2 mystery chicks 7 weeks ago and having trouble identifying gender and breed. Any ideas on breed and gender would be helpful. Not sure if these chicks have pea or straight combs, as they look like something in between. Thanks in advance for your responses.

Thinking the buff one may be Orpington with Easter-egger since it has a pea comb and green legs? Not too sure about the breed(s) of the lighter one.

They look like modified pea combs, which you will get when you cross a single combed breed with a pea combed breed.
So, Easter Eggers most likely. They both have willow colored legs as well.
Agree white one is likely a pullet. Not sure about the brown. 😊
Do you know the possible parents breeds?

I’ve asked the neighbor who sold me the eggs about what breeds of chickens she has. She told me that she’ll ask her husband and get back to me. The buff one for sure is more difficult to identify gender.

Updated pictures at 8 weeks as of today. I think they still both look like pullets as most have commented but have noticed some red leakage on the lighter ones wings. Can you have pullets with that kind of red leakage?
