    I got two yesterday. The guy (who sold this to me) insisted they are between 3 to 4 month. I think they are around 10-12 weeks since they are small. I think the white one might be light sussex. But the grey one has facial hair and look like an owl. What is it? Are they pullets or cockerels? Thanks for help!

    Perhaps a bantam Easter Egger? They both look like hens.

    They pullet in the first, third, and fourth pic is definitely an EE. The other one looks like a delaware but with pink legs. [​IMG]

    My first thought was also an EE and a Deleware.

    what do you think about gender? nobody thinks the white one is light sussex? about the east egger (the gray one)? I heard people say EE can be identified by color (for gender)....Thanks.
