    Both are cockerels. And both don't look like pure breeds to me.

    Where did you get these? The bottom one isn't looking like a bantam to me. It definitely isn't a Japanese....

    I almost wonder if he could be a Birchen Modern? Hatchery quality of course, so he wouldn't look like the google images, if you look them up. :)

    Mm no. He does not have black legs like those birchen modern.. I am pretty sure he looks more like grey Japanese. He is only 12 weeks old.. too early to tell?

    S
    Sorry I mean top one is cochin type and bottom is same size as top one.. and the bottom is last chicken to grow full feather.. so he is probably less than 12 weeks old..
