    Kinda hard to tell but my best guess is that they are both pullets. The one on the left seems to have a bit more comb but it looks paler. The one on the right no comb definitely a pullet IMHO.

    Those are pullets. Barred fowl can be sexed by their color. The males have wider bars of white and yellower shanks. The pullets have wider bars of black and more black in their shanks.

    That is assuming they are 'pure' for the barring gene, and not mixed...
