    they are way to young to sex. between 8-10 weeks is a better age for that

    One of each, one pullet, one cockerel. Silver Laced is a color/pattern not a breed. I'm not sure what you've got there. They look like cochins but they're not feather footed. Or wyandottes but they're not rose combed.

    Thanks for the replays, when I bought them the lady said they are both silver laced bantams I'm new to other breeds of chicks apart from silkies as that's all I've had in the past, they are now 8 1/2 weeks old so maybe if I update some pics in 2 weeks time someone might know more thanks again guys
