    the blk. onehas a lighter face -not as red- Are they the same age? If so then I say pullet. Also does not have the comb like the other either.

    It brown/buff one does look to be a rooster the black on might be a hen But there not Brahmas, but he could be a Brahma cross. Brahma have feathered feet and the coloring would a lot different ...
