Those with the red combs are roosters. I can't quite see everyone clearly in your photos, but I believe I see two for sure.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

That's what I thought too. I didn't take any comparison photos but the one you see in this pic is the one I believe to be a rooster. They all came out of a pullet bin but this one has had red huge comb and wattles since like 3 weeks. The rest are just now getting theirs..

Can anyone here tell me if all the silver laced wyandottes have the green iridescent feathers or do just the roosters? This guy has them around the bottom of his back right before his tail feathers..

Roo. 12 weeks. In the sun his tail has the green sheen to it.

 

Pullet also 12 weeks. No sheen.
