    I have some ee the same age.
    The first 3 look like pullets.
    The fourth cockerel.
    Middle of the last 3 cockerel.
    Not sure about the breed of the black ones.
    What did they look like as little chicks?

    The last three look like my Barnevelders. Do they have single combs? I can't tell from the pics.

    Those last ones are not Golden laced Wyandottes, IMO. They almost look like EEs with yellow legs. The color pattern is odd and the body type wrong for a GLW, unless they are a mix.
    The Easter Eggers are pullets except for the one you know is a cockerel. Sometimes, youll get a late blooming cockerel, though, so watch for that.

    I agree with Speckled hen's assessment on the EE's.

    I also agree with psymonetta that the dark chicks look a bit like barnevelders, but barnevelders have a single comb. If your chicks have flat pea combs, then they might be dark cornish chicks instead.

    The dark chicks look like hatchery dark cornish to me.

    For the EE's

    The first three are pullets, the lighter red may possibly be a cockerel but for now I will say pullet. The last one is definitely a cockerel.
