    Definitely not barred rock, but I'm not sure on the breeds. The first one has feathered feet... second one could be a male, but you'll need a couple more weeks to be sure. I think ours started to crow-k (sounded like they were being strangled - they croaked!) around 6 weeks.

    Well, I know my black australorp is all black, - maybe a black sex linked, then?
    As to which the feathered bantam is, I dunno... [​IMG] sorry... Possibly a cross breed, then?

    My vote is...

    First photo is male Dark Brahma Bantam

    Second Photo is male Black Ameraucanas (maybe)

    But I am very new at this so don't take my word for it. Just my guess. [​IMG]

    The first one cannot be a brahma, wrong comb, however it does look like a cochin, MALE. The second one looks like a black australorp, MALE. Black australorp chicks start out with white on their entire underbelly and that will change when he is completely feathered in.

    Quote:Ahhh... that would be why I didn't know that.. I only have a BA hen! Although... I have a BA/Light brahma chick that is mostly black with a yellow bum... wondering if it might be male, then?
