    a few more pictures would help... also it's probably a little early to tell.

    Hard to tell with just comb shots and not body shots as well - but here's my take on them. They are still pretty young for sexing.

    EE1. Pullet
    EE2. Cockerel
    EE3. Cockerel
    EE4. Can't really tell from the picture, I'll say pullet based on coloring
    EE5. Definitely a cockerel.
    EE 6. I'll say cockerel

    A bit early on the Ameraucana's, but they both look like pullets right now.

    Welsummer is definitely a pullet.

    my guess: 5 and 6 are roos but it's still a little early to tell. maybe you can show us more pics in a week or two.
