    These two chickens are approximately 16 weeks old from what we can tell. We received them about a month ago. Any ideas on breed or gender? Not sure they are exactly the same breed since one has feathered feet and the other one does not.

    We have three other hens. Two bantam EE and a silkie/d'uccle mix. You can see the two EE in a few of the pictures below.

    Both are cockerels, and look like mixes.

    Both roosters and I'm thinking mixes too.

    They both appear to be Dark Cornish crosses. The feather-footed one is definitely a rooster and a pretty one at that, for being a mix. I'm not so sure about the other being a rooster, I can't see any hackle or saddle feathers in the pictures (the saddle feathers all appear rounded to me). [​IMG]

    Cockerels. They look kind of like Olive Eggers, I see some Black Copper Marans and Easter Egger in there (especially in the feather footed one), the other one could be any kind of cross.
