    The mom of the blond one is a buff orpington, the dad is a ginormous colorful rooster (not sure of the breed but he's the beast amongst his hens in one of the pictures). The mom of the brown one is an ameraucana.

    Roo or Hen?

    First one is definitely a cockerel, and I think the second one is a cockerel, too.

    They both look like cockerels to me.

    They both have long tail feathers, too. I think they are cockerels.
