    Both do look like males, but I’m uncertain.

    I’d say your white on is a hen and your pied one is a drake. :)

    I don’t remember how old exactly they are but I guess 3 or 4 months old.

    If they are 3-4 months then I'd say they are both drakes.

    I thinks its hard to say up till 5-6months. My hens looked like that also at that age. My best way to judge is keep an eye fror the next month or two and if the caruncle growth stays the same and doesnt visible augment then id say females! i do think the white is female though

    They appear to be females. Same size, thin legs and small heads

    Yes they are both same size and I thought that they maybe both male because of same size.
