Are my two chicks hens or roosters?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to these boards and also new to raising chickens.
    I bought two unsexed chicks before Christmas, their dad is a white Silkie and the mum is a barred Plymouth Rock, one of them seems to be trying to crow but I'm not sure which one it is, I'm also afraid that I may have two roosters on my hands. Can anyone verify the sex of these chicks for me from the pics included?
    The kids have named them....
    White one is Cloud and dark grey one is Cotton.
    Thank you :)[​IMG]

    That's what I was afraid of :-( Ohh well, looks like I'll be re-homing them.
