    A few bits of info..would be helpful! How old?....The red one looks like a Road island red and the white looks huge, I wonder if he's some kind of meat chicken. Both look like roosters!

    Those are huge for only a month old and if that's the case they are roos for sure. Maybe the pic is decieving! I'm pretty sure that the white one is a meat chicken.

    The white one does look a lot like a cornish cross. Hope it's the angle the pic was taken from. [​IMG] Does he have trouble walking? THey usually take a few waddling steps then flop down to rest and can usually be found very close to their feeder and water. They will often run and play with the other chicks, but they have to flap a lot to keep their balance. If so, he will need to be butchered in another month or he will live a very short uncomfortable life folowed by death by heart failure at a young age due to obesity his heart can't keep up with, nothing you can really do about it. [​IMG] I have 3 right now. I didn't quite realize how horrible they actually were. They have very sweet personalities, I just feel so sorry for them! Next time I get meat chickens, I'm getting some freedom rangers!

    The other looks like a production red. not sure on gender.

    Both roosters. White one is a Cornish X (meat chicken). The red one is a Rhode Island Red (aka Production Red).
