    It looks to me like you have a cockerel and a pullet.

    That is very distinguished white barring, I think you have to cockerels.

    Thanks for the helpful comments. I'm pretty sure they are both roosterd too. They both have more pronounced spur nubs than any of the hens we have.

    Do roosters that grow up together stay friends? These teo are slmost inseperable, exctpt that lately ond of them tried not to go to roost tonight...im asking because im going to have to give them away once they start crowing and will try to give them to the same home of they will stay friendly. A few of my friends said they would take a rooster but im sure i could find someone who wants both so i don't Have to seperste them. It's funny how they stick together and couldnt care less about the other chickens.

    I raised three roosters together and they seemed to get along quite well. I'd give it a try. If they start to fight violently, get them separated.
