    Curious--what cross did you use? I assume the chocolate gene came from the dad, and the green from the mother. If it was the other way around, then both are boys. But assuming the mom was a green egg layer, I think that 1 could possibly be a pullet, as there's not much red yet.
  3. the mother was a ameracana/marans cross. father was a silver laced wyandotte

    Wouldn't that make them more EE's than OE's?

    At this age it is more helpful to show full body shots though, but so far I agree boy and girl.
  5. ya EES or OEs. there a mix eaither way. lol i just called them olive eggers cuz the came from olive eggs
