7 and 9 weeks old. I'd love some help guessing roo vs. hen!

I have 13 chicks, the buffs, barred rocks and a mystery black one that was supposed to be a barred plymouth rock, are 9 weeks old.  Rhode Island Reds, Columbian Rock Cross and Black Australorps are 7 weeks.  They were all antsy in the pantsy this morning right after I let them out so I had a tough time getting pics of all of them.  Thanks in advance for any advice!

I hope so!  This is the beginning of my chicken adventure so I'm hoping to ease into it with just the pullets before adding a rooster!  Thanks for the input!

Yay!  Thanks for the input and the little welcome message!  I'm SO happy we have the chickens.  I've been learning for about a year and it's so exciting to put it all in action and watch them grow!
