    Welcome to BYC!

    The one on top with the big red wattles is a cockerel. The other is probably female.

    The one in back is possibly a rooster. They both look pretty pink in the combs already though.

    My first thought was a pullet in the front, cockerel in the back. Well, the back one is a cockerel, not changing my mind there. But, look at those thick ol legs on the front bird! Wouldn't surprise me if that one is a cockerel also.

    All chickens are vaguely noisy when the moment hits them. Roosters like to crow, some more than others.

    The crowing is what worries me as I live in the burbs
