    Brand new to this chicken thing, and thought I had 2 hens (pic 1 & 2 are same bird, just a close-up) but the brown one has started crowing a bit in the morning! 2 questions:

    1. What are each of their breeds?? I think brown is a buff bantam, but not sure. And don't recognize his comb!? And no clue what to call the white one.

    2. What are their genders?? Pretty sure the white is a hen, and thought the same about the brown until now.

    *Both are almost 4 months old, neither has Spurs . Both have spur buds.

    Help!!!

    They both look like they have roo tail feathers to me, although some hens have some tail feathers that stick out as well.

    Both are cockerels.
    The white one is a white Leghorn.
    The buff I have no clue.

    The buff is a cockerel. Does he have feathered legs? The white looks like a pullet in that picture. Can you get a closer one?

    Oh. My. Kinda sad. Was hoping for some (unfertilized) eggs.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen that comb in a game type of bird.... Sorry I don't know the name but you could research game birds.

    I dunno about breeds, but the one you call the buff bantam has what looks like a rose comb to me
