    These are 2 weeks old, an EE mix and another one, common breed, but I've never had one.
    I'm new to standard breeds.
    The EE mix is on the right and is more stripey & the other is more buff.

    What is the breed on the left chick?
    Here's a second pic of her.

    What is the breed cross on the right EE chick?

    I know eyeliner means partridge, right?

    Brown leghorns look chipmonkish with the eyeliner... I think they are darker than your chick, though...

    They both look like EEs to me.

    Thanks, I hope they are both EEs. The one out of the EE blue egg is a boy, I'm pretty sure, and the one out of the beige egg is likely a girl.
    No muff or beard on her --the one in the hand in the second photo. No leghorns on the property she came from, either.

    I have 9 BO / EE chicks. Four of them look just like yours and I am pretty sure they are all roos. The other five are darker like the hen was as a chick and so far look like pullets. Your chicks are adorable. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! I think that's what they are. There's a BO on the farm as well as lots of EEs & cochins. Hope they're not both roos, though!
