    Ok, I think these are both Bantam Cornish, though the one is bigger than any of my other Bantams. They both have big yellow legs and pea combs. They are feathering out differently though, one is coming in a lot lighter (white spots on the ends of the feathers) and the other looks darker (no spots). I tried to get a pic of them together to see the difference, what do you all think?

    Side view, the one on the right is at least twice the size (very heavy chick!)

    The one on the left has the lighter spots, flash from camera washed out their color

    we did have a couple cornish bantams in the past that looked like this as babies. You may be right. The one w/ the bigger spot on his head looks just like the one we had that ended up a roo. That may be the color diff. between the two. Maybe one roo and one hen?
