    Just got a couple little blue chickens. I think the seller said they were born in March. I can not remember for sure what breed they were. Probably just easter eggers, but I know there are a couple similar breeds. Of these two, one is lighter than the other and one has a darker head. Also, one has pretty long ear tufts and the others are shorter. They are hard to see in these pictures. I will try for better ones this week. Also, I was curious about any ideas on gender. Sorry they are still a lil wet in the pictures. It was pouring when we picked them out. Thanks in advance.

    Edited to add better photos...

    As long as their pullets im happy. I never can tell well with the easter eggers. At 3-5 months none of mine have any of the characteristics of roosters from other breeds.

    I added new photos. They are much better quality than the first set, but I left the others too. These DO get larger if you click on them, and I tried to leave the resolution high enough so show good detail. Thanks for your advice all.
