    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! It looks like you have a pullet and a cockerel there. Your white looks just like my Amber hybrid hen but I'm sure members in the what breed gender section will be able to help you further. I see you have already posted there.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    You have a pair, and they appear to be mixed breeds.
