    These were "chipmunk" chicks, randomly thrown into the Black Australorp bin at Rural King, from which we chose them.
    We've been assuming they were some sort of hatchery EE mutts.
    Would like to hear some input as to the gender and/or breed, though it' doesn't matter....they are the SWEETEST of all our peeps and definitely keepers!
    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    I don't see anything saying EE. I'm thinking slow broilers, like Rainbows or Pioneers.

    Definitely a meat-type breed given the size difference.

    Ah! It makes perfect sense! I could never eat these guys/girls. They are too sweet!
    Any thoughts on gender?

    Neither one are showing signs of being cockerels, yet.
