    Is it just me, or does that roo have a buttercup comb...it might be a rose comb but in the pic it looks doubled up and cup shaped to me? So they are probably just easter eggers...most of the time people say they have an auracana or ameraucana it is actually just a mix known as an easter egger...unless all your birds are easter eggers...I don't know.

    @ rockerhen- you are thinking they both are roos? One crows but the other doesn't plus it has more of a bustle than tail feathers...no waddles on either one though..the one we think is a hen, has a pink comb where the other has a deep red comb. The one that is crowing has spur buds and the other one doesnt...

    Looks to me like one hen, one rooster. But then again they both look like they have hackle feathers. Some colorings it is hard to tell for me.

    From the pictures given, yes, both appear to be roosters. I haven't seen an EE hen with a comb anywhere near that size. The one with the paler comb just looks a little younger than the other. Maybe a picture of them dried may prove to be different, but both seem to have slender pointed hackles. and saddles. Here's one of my EE hens (right) for comparison.

    Those are both Easter Egger roosters for sure.
