    s far as I know the black and the bars are potent genes so the dark one should be from the barred roo. I dont know a whole lot about breeding but I'm sure someone here can tell you more.

    The first one looks like a Buff X Barred which would make it a male.

    The second could be either gender with the Barred as the papa with the red on the forehead I'd guess either the RIR or buff was mom.
