    Thanks. They are about 3 weeks old, I think.Can you tell if they may be girls or boys?

    That's it!!! I was looking at sebright because of the outline on the feathers but mine is opposite in color as what i could find. It has black feathers with brown outline. Your's looks just like it! Thank you. I wondered if the other may be a cochin. I am just learning about chickens. I just love the cochin's crazy-wild feathers. They give her some personality and make her look very fluffy.

    Just guesses, I think for now the Cochin looks female and the Seabright looks male.

    They are very beautiful breeds, here is what my Barbu d'Anver looked like as a grown cockerel:

    I have gotten incorrectly colored Seabrights from TSC, I'm not sure they would carry such an unique bantam like a D'anver, but time will tell.

    He is gorgeous! We (my husband) have set a "no rooster" policy but, if he is as beautiful as this, I may make (ask for) an exception. ;)
