Then it's safe to say that the ones with pink combs are male. The Dominique may have the darker barring of a pullet, but that comb is way too developed and pink, indicating that it is a mixed breed cockerel.

This one looks like a Leghorn mix. And it's a boy.

Thanks June
I am going to give away the mix black one and the white cockeral.
Shall try to get a RIR , silver laced wyndotte and a Plymouth rock hen .
Hopefully the silkie doesn't turn out to be a rooster too.

Doubt know about the Silkie yet. They can be very difficult to sex. Sometimes it's hard to tell even after 4 months old.

The only cockerel I see, is one of the white ones, with a larger, more prominent white comb. The rest seem to look like pullets. The white chickens could really be anything, my guess is a hybrid of some sort. The speckldey one, similar to a Maran is a Dominique pullet. The two pullets with gold leakage seem to resemble gold laced Wyandottes.
