    Are you asking what breed these 2 are or what breeds you should get for them?

    #1 is EE
    #2 is BO

    The breeds you get depends on weither or not you want pure breds or mutts.

    EE is an Easter Egger... that means that hopefully the daughters that he produces will have olive and green eggs.

    I have an EE that gives me light brownish eggs... go figure.
