    They look like australorps to me. A great breed. Good layers and very friendly.

    Do they have feathers on their feet? Either way, they look partridge in color, which would make them both males.

    Look up Partridge Cochins on google, you will find that males and females have a different look in their feathering. Those two are definately males. Typical cochins have a great disposition, and you probably will not have issues with the two of them.
