    sorry for the poor lighting, the first chick is white and the second more of a yellow but still pretty light.

    Please realize that this early it is a roll of the dice on what the gender will be.....but I'll give my predictions.

    The first is a pullet, her little hed is very round. And the second has a cockeral look to him.

    We can have fun guessing!!! And they are soooo cute! [​IMG]

    The first one looks like my delawares did at that age (from what I can remember). I'm not sure about the second one, a side view might help.

    You can see lots of pictures of lots of different breeds at www.feathersite.com .

    Opps...sorry, I have to agree, the first does look to be a Delaware. But the color in the pictures are yellow so I having a hard time telling if the second is reddish or buff. If it has a red tone to it I'd guess a light RIR. NOOOO....is that feathering on that foot? Not a RIR!! Whew... [​IMG]
