To young to sex, but the breeds look right except for the solid black one is not a BR. It maybe a BSL though. Also you can post again when they are around 6 weeks for gender guesses.

The black one looks like a black sex link, so if that's true, than that ones definitely a hen because they can color-sex them at birth.
