    GLWs actually have wattles and no "puffy cheeks", so I'm thinking the birds you have are Easter Eggers with possibly some GLW in their ancestry.

    I guess I should have mentioned that they are only 8 weeks old if that matters.....

    Those are Easter Eggers. They must have gotten put in the wrong bin. Feed store employees rarely know what breeds they have, or what those breeds look like as chicks. They are both pullets, though.

    Do ALL EE's have puffy cheeks? I have a dark grey chick that I've always assumed was an Easter egger because she doesn't fit into any other breed I bought, but she doesn't have puffy cheeks.
     
  7. Those are Easter Eggers. No they don't all have puffy cheeks. Not matching a standard is part of what makes them EE.

    Not all, but a majority do. EEs are basically the "mutts" of the chicken world.

    Not all, no. I've noticed quite a few more clean faced EE pics being posted the last two years, so I'm guessing some hatchery got some clean faced stock and bred them.
