    Correct me if I am wrong, but the one with it's head down is a cockerel in the 2nd pic.

    The one with its head down has a fairly large comb for a chick that age and I would definitely keep an eye on it, but at this point they are both too young to sex with any real degree of accuracy. I would suggest posting their pics again in about 5-6 weeks. By then their gender will be much more obvious.

    Both of their combs are very red to be that young. I'd say they're both male.
