    The only things I know for sure are that:
    -the white one is half silkie, with comb and wattles growing fast
    -the brown one is half ameraucana, no comb/wattles so far (daddy in the background in that last photo)

    They both look like hens, though the first one's comb is a little too red for me to be certain on gender.

    How old are they. The brown looks like a girl. The white, the red and size of the comb in a silkie mix would worry me.

    Ahh thank you! They'll actually be 7 weeks in a couple days... The other half of the silkie cross most likely is golden comet, if that is helpful at al!

    I'm changing my mind; now, I think that the white one is a male, though I still think that the brown one is a pullet.

    I think the white one is a cockerel, and the brownish one is a pullet. Cute birds!
