    First one might be a boy and same with the last one. The pictures don't show their combs/wattles that well though.

    i find it easier to wait until they are fully feathered and a little older to tell because at this age you really can't tell if they are a cockerel or a pullet because they don't have much of a comb or wattles

    The only one that looks questionable to me is the first one...The comb spot looks a little red, but I can't really tell before the chicks are fully feathered.
