    I believe they are both roosters.

    Male feathering coming in on the white one, and male coloring on Benjamin, although the feathers on its head make the comb hard to see.... Lol looks like its wearing a toupee :D

    Duke would be a nice name for Daisy, sorry. Benjamin is aptly named.

    I'm not experienced with either of the breeds, but I'd expect to see mroe comb at thirteen weeks, especially on the white one without the crest...

    They look like they have pea combs, the first one might be a rose comb; look like EE from that angle... I'm personally just looking at the cockerel feathers because I can't quite see the combs... But the wattles are red too, so I just guessed without seeing the combs clearly ;)

    I'm thinking that they're both roosters, too.

    Thanks, they are supposed to be Maran x Isa Browns which is what we were told when we got the eggs but since describing them to the person we got them off she believes there could be some silkie in a few of them and possibly leghorn in the white.
    I have no idea we are just going with backyard crosses (mutts). I suspected they were roosters but they have looked like this for about 4 weeks now and havent really changed much

    they're both cockerels. Combs and sex feathering aside, the coloring says male on both birds.
