    The larger/ lighter one is a hen, the smaller/ darker one I think is a rooster. Can you get a better side on pic of it?

    Both are fully mature hens. Smaller one is something like ISA Brown or a cross specifically bred for egg laying. Larger one seems maybe Sussex mix or??? partly due to her large size.
