    Both are cockerels, the top one is a new hampsire red (I think) and I'm not sure on the bottom one.

    He looks like he might be a buff orpington, so the top chick can't be a new hampsire red, if his father is a buff orpington. They have to be mixes, unless you have a buff orpington hen.

    They all have the same mom and dad, the dad is a buff Orphington and the mom is a American gamefowl
