Top one is Mary Poopins AKA Big Bird

 

 

 

Bottom one is Shelia ( my son named it )

 

 

 

That is quite a lot of comb for 6 weeks.  In the group photos it *looks like* they've got green legs which I believe makes them Easter Eggers, but that's one of those things retailers do.  My understanding is that a lot of the white and black patterns do tend to be male- also EE's don't usually get wattles- just combs.  I'll toss my guess in as both are cockerels- haven't had any EE cockerels myself but I have a couple pullets that didn't pink up until quite a bit later.
 
Great job with the photos!

18 layers of various breeds and 8 cute chicks... and a broody sitting on the last chicks produced by our Super Blue roo and Super Blue pullet.

 

RIP Gus, our beautiful Super Blue rooster.  May you live on through your beautiful chicks!
