Broiler or Not?

I have 2 brown or red colored chicks which I'm confused if they're red broilers or Rhode Island Reds or some other breed. I'm pretty sure I have a rooster since the comb is really big compared to my older chick which I think is a cornish cross. What breeds are the other 2?

The first one looks like a broilers cross, possibly red ranger cross or something. The other looks like a typical production red layer. Based on the squattiness of the body, the large comb and waddles as well as the massive legs, the first one is obviously at least part broiler. You will want to butcher when it gets bigger and provide it with electrolyte water, otherwise it will begin to suffer...
