Still too early, if you want a guess I would say the dark two are roosters and the white a pullet, wait another month or two, the boys combs will begin to get pink by then.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

Yep. My thoughts exactly. Second black one a bit of a 50/50 though. Comb says rooster, but personality says pullet. Just have to be patient.

I do notice too that the boys will feather slower than the girls so if I go by that then the white ones a boy. You should be able too tell in a few weeks. They are one of my favorite breeds though here we call them cochins.

I find with bantam Cochin the comb to be the best indicator. 

 

In the 3rd photo, the far left dark chick looks to be developing into roo, and the other dark chick probably also.

 

You'll know in a month as those combs will really take off with the guys.

 

Right now, I think the white is a pullet.

 

But too early for any final calls.
