3 cockerels, 2 pullets

Thinking pullet for the white banded one and cockerel for the green banded?
hope I am wrong and both pullets?
The one in the top picture looks like a roo and the one in the bottom picture looks like a hen.

Again, sorry for the poor quality.
Chick #1 Was yellow chick, now mottled grey and brown - Likely an easter egger
Chick #2 was chipmunk chick, now pretty brown and black. - Likely an easter egger
Chick #3 Larger Black and White Chick, now mostly black - Likely an australorp or jersey giant
It's actually really tough for me to tell the black chicks apart. Sorry for the quality again.
Chick #4 - Small Black and White chick, now mostly black - darker legs - Likely an australorp or jersey giant
Chick # 5 - Small Black and White chick, now mostly black - lighter legs - Likely an australorp or jersey giant
Chick #1 could be a cockerel but I'm not quite sure. #3 and #4 are cockerels, and #5 is a pullet. Chick #2 kinda looks like a cockerel but I don't really know ...

Will try to get closer pictures of my Australorps as they're more tough for me right now...thanks in advance :)
Pullets. Hens will poof up their neck feathers just like roos and fight like they do, too, just not as aggressively.

I think that's a hen. That second picture is awesome, btw!
Roosters, for sure.
Hmm, well, you've got a few hens, at least. The ones in the fourth and sixth pictures look like hens to me, and I see a few hens in the second picture. The ones in the first, third, and fifth pictures look like roosters, as well as the last two. I'm not completely sure about the others.
