    We got these babies about 3 weeks ago. Names are Biscuit (New Hampshire Red) and Gravy (unsure)!

    it is hard sex them this early, but gravy could possibly be a barred rock, silver laced wyandotte, or Dominique. i woud look up pics of the breeds as chicks and see if you find any matches :)

    Gravy is a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and I'm leaning towards cockerel based on the red comb. Biscuit is a Production Red (or hatchery New Hampshire), and looks like a pullet for now.

    The first bird looks like a pullet. The second is definitely a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and most likely a cockerel. That is a very wide, red comb for the age.
