    If under 10 weeks old, then yes, both are cockerels.

    If they are only 6 weeks, they are cockerels for sure. What breed is the white one?

    These 2 fight with each other all the time and puff at eachother, they run back and fourth and chase eachother. They leave the other one i have, who is for sure a hen, completely alone, she just minds her own business.
