    Hi everyone!
    Need some help on figuring out a possible breed or mix. AND what gender....
    The grayish one, Violet, was given to me as a gift. I'm assuming some sort of EE. She was from a local feed store. The white and tan one, Kate, I rescued from the feed store. It had pasty butt and was really lethargic so I brought it home. She made a full recovery and is the sweetest thing ever. Although I'm nervous that Kate isn't a girl... I'm so attached to this little thing and if she's a Roo, I won't be able to keep her :( any guesses? I'm kinda scared to know...
    They both have such pretty coloring - I'm so curious as to what they might be. I attached their two day old pic as well [​IMG]

    You have two Easter Eggers. The red one is a cockerel.
