I appreciate your help please, one of them I know is a rooster, bc it started crowing this morning, but I don't know which one and I live in a surburb area. They are both about 4 months. Sorry about the photo quality, I'll try to take better photos

I'd suggest taking a side-on shot - we can then see evidence of saddle feathers and hackle feathers. What breed are they? I'm certainly no expert of gender, but the wattle and comb development on all of them significant for 4 months old.

 

I'm sure the gender experts will be along soon to offer their opinions.

I'd say one cockerel and one pullet, but I'd need better pictures to be for sure. 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Agreed

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Thankyou so much everyone for your posts, the one with the darker colouring is the cockerel, i told my mum and she didnt believe me till she saw it crow this morning. It sucks bc I will have to give it away to my best friend who lives on a farm bc we are not allowed roosters in surburb area and its my fave one, and lets me pet it sad.png. As for the other one ill take pictures of it tomorrow smile.png.
