I have two 3 week old bantam chicks I got from TSC. I am only posting photos of one chicks, but they look the same. What kind are they? Any guesses at the gender?

She looks like a Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantam.
great! Thanks for the idea!

Also, you said 'she'.... any reason you think it is a female? I would love both of them to be, but they were in the straight run bin.

You can't tell from the photo, but the wing feathers are a bit more curly, or twirly than my Red Sexlinks, will that stay?
I usually call all unknown chicks "she", but right now I'm leaning towards cockerel because of the thick legs and comb.But she/he's still young, so it might change. :)
As for the curly fathers, she might just have have a mild case of frizzling. Sometimes chicks grow with a few curled feathers that fall out eventually too.
I agree with Veer67, it looks like you have a Black Breasted Red Old English Game. I'm leaning toward cockerel in terms of gender, but it is way too young to tell for sure.
so pretty! Thanks everyone for your input. Wish it was a girl, but whatcha gonna do?
