Can you please tell me the breed of these chickens and what genders they are? I’m thinking male (no water container) and female (water container)

Thank you! They both have a feather or two on their feet. Why does the one have a more developed comb than the other? That’s why I thought different sexes.

Definitely pullets (girls/hens). Some mature differently, and females have combs/wattles that differ between age/breed/gender/genetics.
My first guess (like the other commenter) would be Australorp. Looks like mine. But the feathered feet... Maybe mixed breed?

How old?
I have a black langshan hen and her chicks, langshan-marans mixed pullets. They are dark, feathered feet, upright tails( makes them look u-shaped), green sheen to feathers. They also developed their wattles early. They don't have much comb so far at 15 weeks. The full langshan mom developed her comb and wattles early.
