    That second one looks male, yes. http://www.dominiquechicken.com/Sexing_Dominique_chicks.html

    This
    link is good for Barred Rocks, Cuckoo Marans and Dominiques and has very good photos.

    There is barely any dark on the leg fronts, the white bars are wide and predominant, so I say male. Even males can have some dark on the leg fronts, but less so than the females. That one looks like a cockerel due to the combination of lighter legs and overall lighter color.

    Can't even see the first one to tell you what it is. You'd need a good picture for that. Combs aren't a good indicator at this age.
