    The first I'm not sure, Second I'd say rooster. How old are they? With a comb that big, I would think he'd be crowing soon.

    They both look like roosters to me. It looks like the first one has streamers as well, a rooster trait (long pointy shiny feathers coming out of the main part of the crest)
