    Yes, taking pictures of chickens can be quite difficult LOL, they move around too much!

    The one in the second picture does have thick legs which sometimes means rooster but the coloring makes it look like a female. If you could try to take a picture of the comb (on the golden/brown one in the second pic) from the front view that would be great for telling if it's male or female.
