    They may be mixed, they are from a farm and they are 11 weeks old. This is Eli and Izzy. So gorgeous and sweet.

    I'm sure they are, but they are so pretty. Their black feathers are iridescent green in the sun. They are both sweet. I also have an Easter Egger, a White Leghorn and another of mixed heritage, lol. I have 9 one week old Amercauna bantam chicks in the brooder too :)

    p.s. excuse my spelling

    the one closest to the camera is a rooster indeed. the other one is a pullet :))
    Eli has big waddles and has started crowing....already. If you want to call the noise he does crowing, lol. He is still learning.
    Yes I kind of figured/counted on them being of mixed breed. Just thought maybe something/trait was dominate. You know, just for fun. :)
    Thanks

    Okay, not to be rude, but i am confused. You say you already knew they were mixed breeds and what gender they were, they what was the point of posting? To double check?

    Really? both of them, even though the one does not have waddles and has a small comb. Until this week it has been pale in color too.
    The other one is no doubt, but I really think the one is a pullet.
    Either way, they have their forever home here. When I take on an animal it is for keeps.
    Plus I hatched these and as you know, you get mighty attached.

    No, that is not rude. Just thought it would be fun to see if any character stood out of what a parent might have been.
    Did not mean to be a waste of time, sorry.
