    These are my bantam(I hope) Barred Rocks from TSC, called Pickle and Pepper. They are just a bit over a month old now, and they LOVE to perch on my arms and shoulders. I'm a little concerned that they might both be roosters, but I wanted to see your opinions on them. [​IMG]

    Also, in the picture below, what breed do you think the little week old chickie with the white face is? I think she is a Black Australorp, but she has a lot more white on her than my other Australorps had when they were that young. I call her Delilah.

    If the bantams and standards develop similarly, then they are both roosters.

    The angle of the 1st is hard to tell, I want to say roo though, but the 2nd one definitely roo [​IMG] They can be sweethearts though, I have one pullet (8 weeks) that flies up in my lap or on my shoulder, we call her Melody. I haven't named the other 4 yet. I like Pickles & Pepper, cute! [​IMG]
