    The first one looks like a Brahma mix cockerel. The second one appears to be a Light Brahma, but I'm not sure on gender.

    I agree. I'm leaning towards male on the second bird.

    The first one is a definitely a Brahma mixed breed. The second one obviously has Light Brahma it it, but I don't think it's pure Light Brahma. I think it has at least traces of another breed in it as well. I'm leaning male on both birds, but not absolutely certain. I wouldn't give up on them just yet.

    Agree they're likely Brahma-based mixed breed cockerels.
