I think they're both clean-legged--pretty sure I recognise the breed.
#1 is a male Old English Game Bantam
#2 is a female Old English Game bantam

That's not a 100% guarantee, but that chipmunk colouration is most common in OEGBs. If they are OEGBs, they're autosexing, and the lighter, greyer one is a male. The darker one with longer eyestripes is female.

Do you think the second is also a bantam, just older? I was thinking a female OEGB until I noticed the difference in size with the person's hand.
