    Hi guys, these chicks are 11 weeks old. The black one is a Marans cross but I am not sure at all what the white and brown one is?? I am sure they are both boys and I am thinking of keeping the white/brown one as my main Roo as although I have a silkie Roo he just doesn't seem to big enough if you know what I mean [​IMG]

    Looks like roosters to me but I am not exactly an expert yet I am still learning but looks like by the tail feathers going down , and usually maran hens have a wider tail or mine does any ways.

    They both look like cockerels. The dark one could be a barred rock or a marans and the white and brown one looks like maybe some sort of red star?

    The white/red one does look like some type of sex-link, a red rooster over a white/silver hen. He's pretty and will probably sire good layers and eating birds, if you're so inclined.
