    Ok I got these guys when I got my Brahmas back in July. All the extras were supposed to be Roos for the freezer. However I dont think these two are roos. I hope the pictures are good enough. I had trouble getting them to stand still long enough and had to have mom hold them.
    (edidted because a picture of my rabbit showed up instead of the chicken)

    This one has brown edges on chest feathers. Otherwise its all black

    Looks like both pullets to me. I don't know about the first one. Maybe black sex link , the second looks like a buff Orp.

    They looks like girls to me. [​IMG]

    Edited to add: I forgot that you asked about breed also. I'm guessing black sex link and buff orpington.

    Lucky girls then. They get to stay out of the freezer. And my rescue roo is lucky to because this means he gets girls of his own.

    Yes, I'm guessing Black Sex-Link (great layers!) and Buff Orpington. And I think they're girls. [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree with that, the Buff looks to have a yellow beak, so I say Buff Rock pullet and BSL pullet.
