    Those look like roosters to me. Barred Rock hens have more black than white. Those tail feathers.

    They both look like roosters. Full, red comb and wattles, and sickle feathers coming in.

    Most definitely Cockerels. You can see the saddle feathers and they are the lighter barring of male BR's.
