i was told one was a boy and one was a girl and looking @ their wings it looks like so, but will they mate when they get older? will the male be a rooster? if it aint a rooster will it still be ab;e to mate?

If it's a male it is a rooster. Male chickens are called roosters and yes if one turns out to be a pullet (female chicken) and the other is a rooster they will mate but it's really not good to have only one pullet to one roo unless you want a really beat up pullet.
And if you are going to keep them you need to read all about housing for them, feed, etc, etc. You'll find a lot of good information on this board. Just check out the different topics.
If they came as Easter chickens from a feed store they could be either pullets or roos.
Good luck with them
