  2. The darker one looks to be a boy, the lighter one looks to be a girl. Both are very pretty!

    Your darker bird is a cockerel, and the lighter one is a pullet.

    Is the light one an Easter Egger?

    We're novice chicken owners, and all we were told was that they are Bantams, so I'm sorry but I can't confirm the breed (Easter Egger, or mille fluer d'uccle) as we didn't get that info when we purchased them.

    d'uccles have single combs, the male on the photo has a rose comb. Might be a mix.
