    I'm no expert on either breed, but I think they look too big bodied to be leghorns, so I'm gonna go for rocks. Guessing boy and girl, in order.

    I almost think they might be separate breeds.

    They look like White Lehorns to me... a good way to tell is to look at the ear lobes. White egg-layers (the Leghorn) all have white ear lobes. White Rocks have red earlobes. They all look like pullets except number two.

    Rocks b/c of how chunky they are. 1 is a roo, 2... could also be a roo since you say they are just 6 weeks old.

    I think you have a pair of white rocks. The first one has red ears and their bodies are chunky.
