    My guess would be australorp or australorp cross and with combs that big at 9 weeks i would say both boys.

    yeah I'm keeping them! no one wants a rooster, and I COULDN'T kill one...
    plus they are both hand raised (very hand raised :) )
    they don't fight, they love hugs and i think they have already worked out the pecking order, Sooty (darker roo) is definitely the alpha roo (after me of cores :) )
