    I don't think anyone can help you right at this moment, there's no way you can tell at this age what gender they are. If you want to know what breed than maybe it'd be best to backtrack from what hatchery you ordered from and see what you ordered if you got an assortment than see what breeds were included and backtrack from there. If you were to post picture when they feather out more people can tell you what gender they are and maybe what breed they are, I'm wondering if they're a black breasted red breed like a welsummer.

    Sorry, it's too young to tell the gender. For the breed, I'm guessing Ameraucana/EE, but it's hard to tell by the pic.

    X2 on the previous posters. I would post again in about 5-6 weeks. By then the breed and gender should be obvious.

    We were told these were Silver laced Wayndotte hens. There are 2 of them this one and another I am trying to find a picture that is identical except has quite a large comb and wattles.

    They are both very large and big eaters.

    Both of your birds are cockerels.
