Can you try posting photos of those chicks in natural lighting? The flash is washing them out too much for gender ID.

 If the feathers coming in on the chest are black, it's a cockerel

 

 

 

 

 

 Looks like a pullet for now

 

 

 

 

 The Marans is a cockerel, too much white for a pullet.

What about this one?

The feathers coming in on sides of the chest on this one are the same color as the wings. Does that mean pullet?

Not necessarily. Just means it's probably a Production Red or Rhode Island Red, in which case, comb development would be the most reliable early indicator. Couldn't tell from the picture if those were black feathers or dark red.

Black chest feathers, it's a cockerel, either a Leghorn or Welsummer.

These are my "outside" chicks, 4 weeks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obviously the last two pics are roos but what about the first pic?

 

Same feathering as the two black pullets but exhibits a male personality from time to time. Also, the only one with ten toes :hu
