    I'm sorry to say this, but the tail is just too long on both for either to be a hen.

    Also, the hens do have red combs, but in my limited experience their combs barely develop at all and stay yellow or light pinkish until very close to laying age.

    There young roosters.
    The Red coming in at the base of the tail and in the wing is a dead give a way.
