Which one are you trying to figure out if it is a roo or a hen? They both LOOK like hens to me but looks can be deceiving. But if one of them have extremely large combs it just might be a rooster. But a rooster has a totally different noise then a hen. It will start making 'baby' crows and it will be more aggressive toward the other chickens.

I'm leaning towards the first being a cockerel, along with the second. How old are they?

I think they're both cockerels, but age is the key. If they're under 4 months, they're both male.

Well I hope whatever the outcome is you will be happy. But I had the same kinds as those in the picture, although I don't remember what kinds they were, but they both looked like that and they were both hens. However I have had chickens for only 4 years so I would let those who have had chickens longer advise you!

Given the size and redness of their combs and wattles at two months, they are both cockerels. :o(

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
