    Looks like a cock on the left and a hen on the right.

    I'm sure Doug or Burt will be along to give you a better answer but even the head and posture of the 2 look like a cock and hen to me. Have you seen one of them displaying? My yearling BS displays his little train all the time.

    Displaying or not at a young age isn't really a good indication... my girls will show off too. But I'd agree with Colby- looks like a pair.

    I know the one on the left is a male the other look like it could be a hen but if you have not pull the tail feather out I could tell you for sure if it a male or hen.
