    I am new and confused about the breed and sex of these chickens. They are around 9-10 weeks old.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] The red and white bird appears to be a red sex link pullet. Not a very definitive shot of the other bird, but I will guess EE pullet.

    Thank you for the answer. The feed store did not know what they are.

    I agree with Sourland- the red and white is a Red Sex-LInk, and the other is an Easter Egger. Both are pullets.

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us!

    Your red bird is a Red Sex-link. The other bird is an Easter Egger. Both are pullets.

    X6 on Red Sex Link and EE pullet. You'll get lots of eggs from the RSL as they are egg laying machines, and you'll get a colored egg of some kind (most likely green or blue, but could be beige, or even pale pink or gold) from the EE. :eek:)
