    What breed and age are they? If they are black sexlinks they will mature fast. You may even get one that matures much faster than his/her hatchmates. Molly is clearly a lady and the other one could be as well. Can you post clearer pics of Matty's hackles, neck area, and tail?

    At 2 to three months old if they are Easter Eggers, which are mixed breeds usually, I think you have one of each. A male will have pointed hackle feathers and other chareacteristics. More pictures will help.

    Looks like you have a male and female, but a side profile photo of the larger combed one could help be sure of this.

    For sure, the second bird is a pullet. But, I'm not sure on the first one. More photos would definitely help.
