    These are 12 weeks old. On the smaller side. Can someone tell me what kind of chicken and if the silver one is possibly a hen?

    The black one is a cockerel. It has a red comb and pointed saddle feathers. I suspect the light one is also due to the comb being so red at just 12 weeks old. However, I can't really see the saddle feathers of the light colored one. I am not good with figuring out breeds.

    Looks as though they're both cockerels, and mixed breeds. :)

    Both are cockerels. Possibly Easter Eggers.

    Where did you get these cockerels from? You could post them on the New Jersey state thread.
