Isabella looks like an Irving to me, too.

Always happy to answer questions! You can ask me about diseases, raising chicks, feeding, and breeds!

The one in the bottom picture, with the most copper, looks like a cockerel, the rest look like pullets.

I think the black are all pullets...you've got a "mossy" back which often lays the darkest eggs. My mossy back matured more quickly that the others, but still was clear it was a pullet compared to the roo...by 6 weeks, BCM roo's typically have substantial red combs.

 

The orange is male....which may be a Blue Copper Marans

Thanks guys makes me feel better,  Since the Black Copper Marans cost a lot of money and the same time I cant keep rooster in our allotment due to noise he will make.  I will have to rehome him even though I want to keep him.
