    Sorry it's to young to sex them. It's best to do it at about 12 wks.

    I think they are mixes and the red and white is looking like a rooster, but post again in a few more weeks to make sure.

    I am 99% sure the red one is a cockerel. I dont think he is RIR, or at least not fully. This is my RIR cockerel a few months ago. I[​IMG]

    t was somewhere between 4-7 weeks. You could look in my past posts? I know i said how old he was then. I posted on here when I was asking what people thoight he was (I didn't think he could be RIR, though that is what I assumed after researching...he came in a rare breed asst. Yeah, im not sure how that happened!!)
    We got them at two weeks and he was "the brown one' then because he was a dark khaki color. Your birds back looks a lot like mine did then, even the white and brown spots on the edge of the wings..but none of the rest does!!


    Your other one, I'm not even going to guess....
