    These two are from the MPC rainbow special. As chicks they were very similar but one had darker gray down on its back while the other had lighter gray and almost a fro. They appear to be feathering in pure white except their legs are different colors. I think the one with the darker down now has green legs showing while the other has yellow (I think). Could the one be an EE? (I hope so!) Is the other one a white rock or rhode island white? Both have single combs...

    Here they are now and at two weeks old.

    Chick 2

    Both of them as day olds.

    White Giant, White Rock or White Orp (based on single comb). Also depends what color the skin is? White skin would be white orp (which does tend to have hues of blue on the legs). White Giant and Rock I believe would have yellow skin and it should be straight yellow (no tinting that I'm aware of).

    They look like they have a slight Green tint to there legs...
    If so I would say White EE's...
