    Both cockerels. The top one could possibly be a pullet, but I don't think so. How old are they?
    The one on the top looks like a barred rock, or a sex link cockerel. The one on the bottom has more irregular barring, so I'm not completely sure, but it could also be a barred rock, sex link, or a cuckoo marans maybe.

    How old are they? It really can go either way so we need to know the age.

    Then I would say they were pullets.

    Pullets. The first could be a pure Rock, the second one looks mixed, but it's female.

    Definitely pullets, but that second one is a mixed breed. Not a Marans, those legs are clearly yellow.
