    Can you increase the size of the photos? Try the biggest/640 size when you were uploading them.

    Also check out the "sticky" at the top of "What Breed or Gender is this?" for suggestions on how to photograph for your birds for easy identification.

    "sorry try clicking on image to enlarge pic only new to this" oops! Didn't think of that!



    The dark one reminds me of our Golden Campine rooster.
    The white one [​IMG] but looks like a pullet. But it's hard to tell right now.

    I think the white one is a roo - I'm not sure on the dark one.

    Your white one has what looks like a pea comb and there is too much pink in that comb for a 7-8 week old pullet. The comb on the dark one looks a bit large for its age, which makes me think cockerel, but... it might still be a pullet (I don't see any wattles yet). Wait a couple more weeks on that one.

    I think they both look like roos at this point, but it's hard to tell for sure from those pictures.

    No idea on the breed but the amount of pink at that age and size of comb and waddles my guess is they're both roos.

    Hard to tell, but if they're only 7 weeks old then I also think they're both roos.
