    I'm not really sure, the dark one is about 2 months, and the brahma is a bit older--just gruesses, sorry [​IMG]

    If they're that young, I'd guess both boys.

    The darker one looks like my Dougie. Exact same comb and coloring.... He's about 2 months old.
    Judging by the similarities, I'd say it's a boy.

    I think the Brahma is a rooster, not sure about the dark one. Do you know what breed it is?

    I was thinking and looking at my chicks last night and I was off on ages. On July 27th I picked up some day olds and also the 2 birds in question. At that time the dark one was feathered out and the Brahma looked just as it does now. So they are probably older than previously stated, since my then newly hatched chicks still aren't feathered as well as the dark bird was when I got him.

    laceynoelle--The dark bird is a mutt. I think the lady I got him from said Welsummer and Olive Egger.
