    These are my first chickens ever. I believe one is a rooster and one is a hen, just from their appearance. What breed do you guys this they might be? Thanks for any help.

    the second picture looks like my ameraucana's... but I am no expert by any means. Puffy cheeks like a chipmunk?

    The one I believe is a hen does appear to have fluffy cheeks. Her head is getting fluffier. The "rooster" I think, he has white speckles just on his chest. No where else.

    I am guessing that the top bird is a mix of something crested. I am thinking silkie. The other bird looks like an Easter Egger to me. I am no expert but others will know better.

    First bird is a mixed breed pullet.

    second bird does look like a cockerel. We really need a better pic of him to tell breed, but I'm leaning toward mix also.
