    they were sold to us as RIR pullets - we got them on May 9th and they had wing feathers by then, but no other feathers .... my best guess is that they are 5 1/2 weeks old

    confirmation of breed and sex would make me feel better

    One of them has been more aggressive than the other - Speckles

    Speckles is on the left

    Speckles is between the 2 white Silkies

    Speckles is the bigger reddish chick --- the other one is a bit smaller and purchased at the same time

    sorry for this last one --- hard to hold her/him still and take a picture --- but this is speckles head

    Speckles looks like a male to me. RIR for sure.

    Would like to see their legs. My guess is that they are EE.

    I'm guessing easter egger as well, but would like a clearer full shot of just one of them by themselves.

    RIR's have very yellow legs and it looks like speckle's legs are green-ish. Plus, RIR's are a very dark red. Maybe it's an rir/ee cross? Looks like a pullet to me right now... post some more pics in a couple of weeks.

    Not RIR yes to EE. too young to tell if male or female.
