    Hoping someone has a good idea what these girls are!

    Despite the very different colouring, they have many similarities. Same size, small combs, similar feathering, calm, almost shy temperament. Both kind of stick to themselves, neither like to be petted or picked up. They're 16 weeks in these pictures, and haven't started laying, so no help id'ing them by egg colour. The black one's legs are almost black/slate coloured, the other one has light flesh coloured legs.

    Really need better pic of the first one, a nice side shot would be good. The second one looks like a black sex-link.

    Oh thank you!!

    Yes, now that I read up on Black Sex-Links (aka Rock Red around here), I'm sure that's what our Georgia is. Makes sense based on the rest of the girls (and boys!) we got from the same seller.

    Will attempt better photos of the other gal, she's tricky to capture. She had 'mascara eyes' as a chick, does that help confirm ee or not?

    Thanks for your input!
