    First is a pullet, second is definitely a cockerel.

    She will lay when she is ready. We are almost at the equinox - if you are in the northern hemisphere daylength will begin to increase soon. That increase will help to induce laying.

    Lots of green on feathers of both makes me think Australorp X EE mix. If so you could get olive eggs. If so they are called olive eggers.
