    They appear to be White Plymouth Rocks, and it's a bit young to be sure what I would guess both are cockerels.

    How do you see they are cockerels?

    They have the body shape of a cockerel, and their combs are already pinkening. A pullet's comb should be a very pale yellow or very pale pink until they near laying age (20+ weeks). These chicks already have the comb color I'd expect of a pullet four times their age.

    x2 They are looking like cockerels because of how big and red the comb already is at this age and their body shape is very rooster-like. :)
