    Seem too young to tell... and what's up with the black legs?
    Dominiques nor Rocks have black, they have yellow often with some dark leakage. And Marans have white/pinl with maybe some light grey leakage along the toes/shanks.

    I was wondering about the black legs too. Bought them from a feed store.. maybe some kind of hybrid thank you for the info.

    Looks like rose combs, so that points to Dominique.

    the size of the combs so young says male, but it's early to be positive.

    So, my guess at this point is mixed breed cockerels with a Dominique parent.
