    The Blue with dark red on the wings/shoulders is male. Need a better picture of the black, but if it has dark red on the wing/shoulder too, it's male as well.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on junebuggena's post. The top bird is definitely a male. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Hello!

    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. I agree, both are males.
