    Hey I am a first time chicken owner, and bought these two lovely chicks about 5 and a half weeks ago! Their names are Sandy and Sunny (I am afraid that Sunny might be a rooster!) . Does anyone know from these chickens' awkward teen years what breed and sex they both are? [​IMG]

    and here they are when they were chicks!

    Jersey giants maybe? And it looks like either two pullets, or a cockerel and a pullet.
