Yes, taking pictures of chickens can be quite difficult LOL, they move around too much!

 

The one in the second picture does have thick legs which sometimes means rooster but the coloring makes it look like a female. If you could try to take a picture of the comb (on the golden/brown one in the second pic) from the front view that would be great for telling if it's male or female.

#1 is a cockerel, the rest are pullets.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I agree

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
