    My son's 3rd grade class hatched some chickens. We brought two home and were told they were either Leghorns or another breed the teacher couldn't remember. They are almost 2 months and we think they both might be roosters and at least one is a leghorn. The other is starting to get brown feathers and so maybe a cross breed? Any help what these are and gender? 20190706_175942.jpg 20190706_175957.jpg

    They are both cockerels. If one is a cross "red leakage" then its possible they both are but the other one doesn't have color leakage.
