Everyone looks female to me. The Aussie looks to be your first layer

I think the black bird (Australorp maybe) is a cockerel. Photo that sells it to me is overhead shot of it where the hackle feathers look pointed and appears to be start of sickle feathers on tail.

Others are pullets.

Thanks it was the australope I was worried about because of the tail. but she/he sits down a lot. none of them seem to make any attempt at crowing even when I crow at them

He won't automatically crow just because you crow at him. Mine didn't start crowing for 5 months past the point of even wondering if they were roosters and I have 8.
