    I just got these chicks free off craigslist and don't know what breeds they are. The previous owner didn't know either. I am thinking the dark one is possibly a black sex-link. Hope they are both pullets too! Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

    It's possible that the dark one is a BSL... The white one is a cockerel though. His comb is way to pink already for any chance of pullet. I'm not sure on his breed.

    White one is a roo, other might be. Had to tell breed at this age, should be easier when they get more feathers

    I had a feeling the light one was a roo - he's acting a bit cocky, no pun intended. He seems a little aggressive already. Do capons crow? Hmmm...
