    Side shots of the whole body would help. You have a white crested blue (first picture) and a white crested black (second picture), a silver laced polish is a white bird with black lacing on the feathers. Good luck with them.

    They both look like pullets to me, though Polish can be tricky to sex.

    I'm thinking pullet on both, especially on the black one.
