Obviously one is a rooster....If you look at my BCM's below, you will see I had one very clear male, one very clear female, then one who developed such that it worried me but proved to be a fast maturing female...she too was coppery fast with even a mossy back (red on the back). Over colored BCM females often lay the darkest.

 

But yes, if the red comes in on the wing bows, that is a tell tale sign of rooster.

I had a black copper maran that was supposed to be a hen, he looked just like that little guy. Needless to say, he's a huge crowing roo now
