    I'm not sure at all, but I'd be leaning more towards them being cockerels.

    By no means an expert, but in this pic, this one looks very similar to our little polish. She is only a few months old. I was worried about her because she was getting some long feathers around her tail but it is apparently normal for females...at least according to all the pics I have seen. I have read that the feathers on the head dress of females are more rounded and the males are pointy.
    Maybe it will help a little. I have no clue on the other one but they are both pretty birds. Hopefully someone better skilled at sexing will chime in.

    Good close ups of the head/neck and side body/profile shots of each would make it easier. My profile pic is of our girl, if you click it you can see the rounded feathers I was talking about. This is the best profile pic of ours I have yet to get, she hates cameras apparently and won't be still long enough for me to get a hold of her. Maybe the pics will help some.
