    There's only one photo and it isn't of either breed you mentioned.

    I don't know how to load more than 1 at a time. That one was sold to me as a Barred Rock. Do you know what breed it is?

    At first look, I personally thought EE bt I'm probably wrong.

    My guess would be EE too, the second one is a Rhode island red or production red. Too early to guess their sex.

    Thanks so much. They are 4.5 weeks right now. How much longer until you can tell sex?

    Usually between 6-10 weeks any rooster will start to get a pink comb and the girls will stay orange.
