I'm new to the chicken scene and was wondering if anyone can tell me what breed(s) these sweet babies are, and if the lighter one is male or female? Please and :th

Possibly legbars and look to be a pair, bottom one looks a pullet.

I was told they were Rhodebars. The light one doesn't look like any of the Rhodebar pullets I've seen/checked in to. It's marked like a Rhodebar or Hambar cockerel. If anyone can please help me figure this out I'd greatly appreciate it.

No they're not Legbars, they're much closer to Rhodebars. Yes they look like a pair.

There are some breeders producing Rhodebars from scratch. These ones are not quite the right colour, so I imagine they might be a work in progress.

Thank you. They were given to us along with a few others when they were two weeks old. All of them but those two have been the breed(s) we were told they are. We aren't trying to hatch any, but I was trying to figure out what these babies are. We got them because I have always wanted chickens and wanted to have them for pets and eggs. They are so funny each with their own quirky little personalities. I want more. Haha
