    Verthandi, there's a difference in eye color, but not enough to say. No one has the bright orange yet.

    Cute, cute! What color is the parent stock? Really interesting pattern of colors on the babies.

    Well, I'm not sure about the stock. You can ask Perfectly_Polish. One was silver laced, the other may have been silver laced/White?

    Both of those chicks look like girls, but I'd give it a few weeks before I can give you a definite answer. How old are they again? The mostly black one is a silver laced, the white looks like it could be silver laced hen with my white polish roo, they could have gotten together when I had all the polish running together. Keep me updated on them!

    I love the coloring on them both. If I could have picked two chicks, these would have been them.

    I'm glad you like them so much! I hatched one out that looks just like the mostly white one, I'll have to get pictures of her soon. How old are they? They both look girl-ish to me [​IMG]
