    These two black and white birds are about 8 weeks.

    I'm not sure of the breed and they are looking cockerel to me.

    They are Anconas and look like pullets to me. Like Leghorns, even the females have large combs.

    Those are Anconas. I have one of those and its a good choice. I let mine out every once and a while and all it likes to do is fly!!! I wish it would be more friendly because when I walk up to it it flies away. But I guess that's what chickens do, they go chicken!!

    I agree, Ancona pullets.

    They do seem rather flighty. Our older hens are super friendly and are handled a lot. I'm hoping the kids charm these 2 a bit.
