    Your NN looks like it might be a Roo cause of the curved feathers and red comb
    Your other chick looks like it might be a Silver Laced Wyandotte...it has kind of think legs...but i don't see much for saddle so may be a pullet

    the second one is a poorly laced SLW and the first one is a turken i believe. I hate to say this but has impy struck again?

    I'm completely the unqualified amateur here, but I'm getting more practice.

    I was just going to second pp. the NN (Turken?) looks like a roo from the tail feathers and the big legs.

    I'm suspecting a SLW for the other one.. but the legs look quite thick and the neck feathers look suspiciously pointy to me. The tail may just be slow feathering in so it might be another boy there.

    Keep us posted as to what they turn out to be [​IMG] I'd love to hear other people's ideas and hints for gender identification.
