    They look feminine to me, but age would help confirm.

    They both look like hens. Not all hens have a small waddle and comb. I've got 11 buffs and a couple of them look as though there isn't a waddle or comb there at all!! And some are pretty big but the Roos have very large deep red and pronounced combs and waddles they even get in their way when trying to eat and drink they are so big!!
