    (There are updated pics in post 9)

    Might be too early. Broody BO hatched them, they are not her chicks though. Might be from our GL Wyandotte hen? Daddy is an Easter Egger.

    I think they're about three weeks? They're VERY similar. One has a little lighter chin than the other. Just let me know if you see anything definitive about either one, or something you'd like to see closer.

    They're quick little monsters and it's hard to get them to pose. ;)

    Little early for gender guesses just yet - but I'd say you are spot on on your guess as to the egg contributor's ID. They look just like the chicks that my Light Brahma recently hatched which are also EExGLW (mine are six weeks now).

    OK - It's been a couple weeks and they're growing fast! New pictures... this morning having breakfast - they still live in my tack room at night.
    Any better gender clues here?

    To my eye... whatever they are, I think they're the same. One is a little lighter on the chest and neck than the other, but their feathering looks exactly the same to me. Again... they are Easter Egger/GL Wyandotte* crosses (*we think).
