    I can't really tell for sure, since they're so far away. Close up shots, especially around the saddle area, would be great! [​IMG]

    The brown one appears to be male as it has darker brown/red colouration on the wings, which usually indicates male...cockerels have patchy colouring, whereas pullets are more evenly patterned. We need a better picture of the white one but I think I see red coming in on the white ones wings too. My guess would be that they are both male and someone has dumped them for that reason, but better photos would help to confirm.

    I noticed the red coming in over the wings too. Can't make out anything about the white one.

    Yep, I see the red on the wing of the red one too. I also see the white patch forming at the base of the tail you see in some red roos. (from the original red jungle fowl coloration).
