    They both look very roo to me. I don't think hens get that much comb. They are handsome though!!!

    That first pic - definately a roo - he's got bigger combs and wattles than my silky roo - also the tell tale streamers on the head and tail.

    The second one - I'm leaning roo too from the pics that are posted. A clearer pic on that one might help make a better determination.

    How old are they?

    I think that they are both roosters.

    They are both roosters. Very nice ones at that.
