    Do they both have feathered feet? The top looks like a cockerel and the bottom a pullet, also look sorta like Cochins but the legs look dark on the dark chick, are they? If so then, how many toes? Could be mixed

    Oh and the first looks to be a cockerel, the comb and wattles are showing really good and at that age it's usually a cockerel.
