    The chickens are 31 weeks old and didnt start laying yet because its winter here.
    Im still not sure about the breeds, the one looks like a polish and the other one a black sex-link.
    Can anyone tell me if they are both girls and what breed you think they are? Thanks

    I agree that the darker one is a rooster from the video I saw. Never will lay eggs. It seems that the back has saddle feathers, but you don't seem to have the big sickle feathers on the tail. I'm surprised that you haven't heard crowing. Not sure about the other one either.

    Whoops, looked like you changed the videos.

    The black one never crowed yet haha, I hope its one of the ones that never do, because live in a neighborhood. I had a white chicken before but had to give it away because it started crowing lol haha

    You've got a rooster and a hen. The rooster (the one with the bigger comb) looks like maybe a Brown Leghorn cross and the hen appears to be a Polish cross.
