    Crisper photos please, and no funky lighting. Also, they are much too young to even guess at their gender. It's not until after 6 weeks old, usually, that males begin to look a bit different.
    Cockerels are usually bright pink in the comb by 10 weeks. Pullets don't start to pink up until they are almost ready to lay eggs.

    The black one looks like an Australorp. The white chick could be a Light Brahma.

    Judging by their feathering, they are both approximately 1 to 2 weeks old.
