    Here are my 9-week old babies. I'm still not sure breed or gender. Someone mentioned Easter Eggers, but does that mean both or just the brown one?

    Thanks for your help!!

    Where did you get these 2 chicks from? EE usually have green eggs and neither if these do and I can't tell what kind of combs they have here either.

    They are only 9 weeks old so no eggs yet. I don't even know if they are pullets or Roos. They were hatched by my co-worker's son but couldn't keep them so we adopted.

    Hopefully this pic helps to show the combs better.

    Both look like girls to me. EE and black Australorp? Just guesses though!

    Here's a pic from earlier today. I'm thinking that Sam Witchickie (brown) is a girl. But MegaCluck (black) is still baffling me. I tried looking for Roo signs, but I just don't know what will tell me. No crowing yet (9 weeks old) and not much color in the black.

    They do both look like pullets. At this age, you'd be looking mostly at comb development, leg thickness and coloring. I honestly can't see the comb on the brown bird well enough to see if it's a pea comb. If so, she has a good chance of laying blue/green eggs. The black bird could be an Australorp, could be a mixed breed bird. She'll lay brown eggs.
