    Some joker gave my wheelchair bound grandfather chickens for Easter so I went to pick them up (he isn't capable of caring for them) I don't know anything about them. Breed, age, gender (obviously) any advice would be helpful. I realize there is no way to tell on the smaller one but anything screaming roo with the bigger one, I have my suspicions that it may be.

    The bigger one looks like a Red sex-link, which is a hybrid cross between any type of Red Rooster and a White Hen. So it is a girl becasue the boys are white with one red patch on their wings (I would say it is around 5 weeks of age). The smaller one looks like it maybe a Old English Game bantam.
