Enlarge the first photo and you can see very obvious stripes on the wings of the younger one who is looking at it's reflection. Hens will never have wings that striped.Are you asking what sex they are? Female or hens will fan their tail like a turkey - especially when they are young- making you think they might be a male who hasn't developed yet. If fanning their tail is what they are calling "strut" - it does not mean its male. The one up on the bench looking at her reflection- looks like a hen to me. I'm guessing the one behind looks like a male- but im no pro.
