    About 2 months after I brought home 4 serama, my brother brought these home....he and I do not know what breed and sex they are. According to my brother, they came from the same batch but his friend does not know what they are either.
    They had a little fight while i left them in the quarantine pen. My guess is the brownish has some hamburg look in the comb and color....not sure on the black ones. Since they are from the same batch, they might be mutts.
    Please help!!!! I will get more pics tomorrow if necessary.

    I have no idea what breeds, but I'm guessing the one on the left in the top picture is a roo. Just to clarify, they are two months old?

    They are both hens. Not sure on breed, but mature hens for sure. You can see the breeding baldness on the back of the black ones head. And the brownish one has hen colored plumage. Both appear to be in a moult or starting one.

    I think both are less then 3 months old. The baldness on the blk one is due to the pecking order fight they had last week. I do think the brownish one is a roos too. I will get more pics on them later. Thanks for your input.

    I think the lack of pigmentation in their faces shows their age. But at the same time, the brownish one is in hen feathering.
