    I have 12 of these little guys that were sent with some silkies and cochins that i ordered. They are now double the size of the others. Some of their backsides very from light grey to dark gray...but other than that they all look the same and all are feather legged.....came from ideal hatchery! They are 2 weeks old. Thanks for the help![​IMG]

    I think that the light gray ones are pullets and the dark ones are cockerels. But I agree, light brahma,

    They look like light Brahmas to me as well. The darker greys could be dark Brahmas. For what its worth, packing peanuts are usually all males, so you might want to have some kind of plan in place for what you'll do with them.
