    I think the white one is a cockerel, the black one is likely a pullet. How old are they?

    Try more recent pictures. It will help to see the cone development over time. I think the black one is a pullet.

    I see no signs of a cockerel at 1 month old. Current pictures would help.

    Pullet. Cone and waddle development isn't far along enough to be a rooster IMO.

    Wow, the comb really did not advance much. I think pullet now.
