    The black/white cockerel, maybe a Silver Laced Wyandotte. The brown/red cockerel, maybe a Brown Leghorn.

    The hen, I am not sure, need a closer look at her profile. The rooster to me, resembles a Jungle Fowl. Its hard to say the way his head is ducking down.

    I see no hen in these pics - 1st is a Wyandotte rooster, 2nd could be Brown Leghorn rooster

    I agree with the above posts, both look like roos, sorry! First is a silver laced wyandotte (feather pattern and shape looks like rooster), second could be a leghorn. Pretty birds!

    Both are cockerels. The black/white one is probably a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and the other rooster is a Light Brown Leghorn.

    Pretty much agree with what everyone else said. Those are both cockerels, no hens pictured. Probably a silver laced Wyandotte, and a brown Leghorn.
