Looks to me like somebody gave you 2 roosters
The comb and wattles are a big giveaway

Its hard to sex them when they are young birds.

These birds look allot older like a year old. That first rooster almost looks like hes 2. The Cockeral I am saying hes 6 months
Well atleast you got lucky and got some cute birds. Did you buy them or were they free?
