    A friend bought chicks this spring but had to buy 6 and only wanted 4 so they gave me these two. Any idea?

    Look like Australorps to me, guessing cockerels? One looks a bit like a pullet maybe?

    Both cockerels. If one has yellow in the leg/sole of the foot, it's a Jersey Giant. Australorps and Jersey Giants are nearly identical, but Australorps will have white in the leg/sole of the foot and JGs will have yellow.

    Are they the same size? One seems to have a peachy color feet and that means it is most likely a Australorp, but the other darker color leg with more yellow feet seems to be more like a Jersey Giant.
