    I just acquired these beauties, but I have no idea on the age -- or exact breed for that matter.

    Got a guess?

    I'm going to second DT and go with EE/Americana's. The one on the bottom looks just like one of my EE girls. They look pretty young, I would guess 4-5 months, but I'm no expert! Are they laying yet?

    I don't know the answer to either question as a newbie, but they are both lovely. [​IMG]

    They are both really lovely Easter Eggers! Very pretty girls. I would say 5 months, because mine is going on 4 and your girls have more of a Redder tone to their combs.... Hope that helped some...

    Nope, no eggs yet.

    I can't wait, though.
