    Here are the latest pics of my 2 mix babies at 8 weeks. I have no idea of parentage. They're kind of small. Now I think the dad might have been an OEGB. The eggs came from a u-pick farm. Is the white faced one a pullet? I thought the brown one was roo material but...? They are so sweet and friendly even having been hatched by a broody 'lorp.

    They are still rather young to say for sure (I like to wait until 16 weeks to be sure), but so far they both look like pullets. [​IMG]

    The second I am 100% sure its a hen. The first looks like a pullet, but its a little early to tell for sure.
