    Heres they are. I think the chipmunk one is EE, and the other no idea. Both have a little black eyeliner.

    Where'd you win them from if I may ask?

    I agree, both are Easter Eggers.

    They could be Easter eggers, but I would like to add that when I bred my production red rooster with my red sexlink hens, I got mostly chipmunk patterns. The darkest, most defined patterns turned out to be solid dark red while the lighter patterns with yellow and red turned out to be lighter, with white on them. These chicks would be about 75% production red (hatchery Rhode Island Red), 25% leghorn (if I am correct on the type of sexlink I have). Sometimes "production reds" are sold as New Hampshires as well.

    Do they have single or pea combs? EE can have single combs because there is no breed standard, but they generally have pea combs.

    X2 on both of the above posts. I think I even see a bit of beard developing on them (particularly on the front chick).

    Sure! There was a Party called "El Junte Gallinistico" organized by members of a class from the universitys agroecological studies program. All classmates got 2 chicks at graduation...
    Now, all the students have a flock and organizes a good gathering of laying hen owners.

    It was super Fun! Had presentstions from owners, a breeder came and spoke, and at the end raffled 4 pairs of chicks.

    My wifes gonna be mad...adding more chicka to our 4 hen flock. Lol[​IMG]

    Cheers

    Pretty little chicks. The blonder is "Sol" and the chipmunk "Lluvia".
