    Pictures from the side would help - at first blush my guess is EEs - cockerel (red) and pullet (dark bird) likely under 20 weeks.

    Both look like Easter Eggers to me. The mostly red bird looks like a cockerel, and the other is a female. I'd also guess that these are under five months old.
     
  4. I agree!

    Both are Easter Eggers. The bigger bird is definitely a roo and the smaller bird is definitely a pullet. They're likely about 4 months old.

    Both are Easter Eggers. The one on the left is a rooster, and the other one is a pullet. I agree with Wyandottes7 and BantamLover55 that they are probably a little less than five months old.
