    That is a lot of pink comb and wattle at their age (indicating cockerel)-- however, it would be best to get a couple of body shots showing each bird in a natural, standing position without arms, hands, etc blocking view of the better part of the bird.

    I'm pretty sure that both are cockerels, but more photos might help.

    Both of them look like cockerels to me.
