    I am not 100% on age, I believe they're about 2-3 months old. I think the red one is a red sex link

    I'd bank on crossbreed cockerels for both of them. Red probably has Production Red influence, the other I would say is a Barred Rock cross.

    The red one is not a red sexlink, but the dark one is a black sexlink. Both are cockerels.

    Can you get some better pictures of the saddle and hackle feathers? And the tail feathers. The combs, wattles, and overall face look like cockerels to me but the feathers seem more like females...But if I had to guess I'd say both look like males.

    They are still a bit too young for male feathering to be clearly visible. It doesn't even start to develop until about 10 weeks, and can take several more weeks to be visible.
