    Does the white one lay colored eggs? She looks like she could be an Easter Egger or have some Ameraucana background. I think it is some mix, because those breeds have pea combs, but the cheek tufts and long neck look like them. The other one could be a red sex link hen that goes by various names.

    Yes, that's fine. But Chickens are pretty cold tolerant. I turn on the light when it is below 10 F at night.

    I have a very similar hen. I agree with "scratch'n'peck". The red sex linked is my bet and once the other lays, you'll have a better idea but she looks like my EE.[​IMG]
