    Both of these are usually at each other, they tend to dance around each other some, also the astorlorp has waddles, and the others do not. Are these two roosters?? They are the sweetest and most gentle of my birds. they love to eat from your hand and sit on my lap or the kids. please, can you tell me yet what they are??

    How old are they? That makes a difference in sex determination. We may need to see pics of the back area so we can see if there are stringy saddle feathers coming in.

    you chickies look just like mine!! and I have a golden comet and a jersey giant!
    My black jersey giant has an almost blue tint to her feathers just like yours and her legs have just changed to blackish!!
    also my bright orange chickie - golden comet, not a red she has shiny pretty neck feathers and is just so much prettier than the reds

    They look girly to me. At 10-12 weeks, those breeds should have fancier feathering...
