    They both look like girls to me.
    Not sure on the first...maybe an EE (easter egger). The second one is for sure an EE.

    Both are definite hens. They are Easter Eggers which is a mutt that the hatcheries sell as colored egg producers under the name of Aracauna or Ameracauna-which they are not. These birds may produce green, blue, brown, or pink eggs & you should get eggs soon!
