    FYI those aren't Polish, those are Silkie crosses. [​IMG]


    The reddish one is a definite boy, bottom one is likely a boy but don't take my word for it.

    I'd say both boys. Hard to tell for sure from the pics but it looks like both have saddle feathers.

    There combs are totally different, the red one is smooth and the red/black is wide and bumpy

    The difference in comb is probably because they look to be first generation frizzled silkie X polish tophat. Polish chickens have a vastly different comb than a silkie...hence some offspring would have one type of comb, some the other, and some an odd mix of the two.

    And, both boys.
