    These chicks are about 3 months old and came eggs from a for a mixed pen of birds including purples and cameos I believe. As newly hatched chicks they looked like peach to me, but I know nothing!! Maybe they are just black shouldered females.
    Does anyone have strong any opinions?

    My guess is they are both females and in the black shoulder pattern.. either cameo or peach. I have never seen a peach in person so I couldn't answer that part. Definitely not a regular black shoulder though.
