    I think I see saddle feathers on both which would make them roosters, how old are they?

    Both are roosters--I can see pointed tail, hackle, and saddle feathers, and the stance/comb development is rooster-like.

    I can't offer much with the Hamburg, but I am going to lean towards a roo.

    The Ara is a roo. Those pointy (and slightly brassy) hackle and saddle feathers are a give away. Much like my little rooster.

    Thank you so much, I was fearing the worst! I live in suburbia and can't have roo's unless I can try the trick to stop them. Are they very vocal birds?
