    It's hard to tell at this stage what breeds are in your Brahma cross. Give it a few more weeks and then post more pics.

    At this point, your Hamburg looks like a pullet but I can't see the comb really well on it and rose comb breeds are a bit more difficult to tell. Can you post a better pic of the comb?

    Both are my most favorite breed, mutts. The little one may have some Hamburg in the lineage, but definitely not pure. The yellowish one has some leg feathering and a pea comb, but none of the body and facial features of a Brahma. It wouldn't surprise me if you get green eggs from that one when it is old enough to lay. Both appear to be pullets, but the little one might turn out to be a roo.
