Some of the chicks are SO OBVIOUS at this point...the Brown Leghorns have HUGE red combs vs. yellow small combs.
But what about these Lavender Orps? Sorry the pics aren't great--they wanted back with the flock in the worst way! Not my most photogenic birds!!!

I think #1 and #5 are cockerels. #2 and #4 are pullets. #3 could go either way, but I'm leaning towards cockerel. At this age though, I'm mostly guessing. It should be a lot easier to tell the difference in about 2 weeks. Definitely watch for them to develop little pink wattles. That will likely be the first clue to finding the boys.
