    This is my 5 month old Barred Rock pullet.

    She has hardly any comb, so my guess is that you have 2 boys also.

    The one on the right looks like a cockerel to me, but I have NOT Rock experience. BUT - is one of them biting your finger in the 3rd pic, to the left? I think you need to feed them more! [​IMG]

    I think both your chicks are cockerels based on their large combs & wattles - they are also missing the dark wash down the front of their legs (typically a female br trait).

    The following photos are of my BRs at 7-8 weeks of age:
