9-week-old pullets or Roos?

I recently gave my broody Buff Orpington some eggs to hatch. I’m pretty sure the speckled gentleman with a red comb is a cockerel, but the rest all look like pullets to me. The crested ones are harder to identify.
The two white ones look identical, except one is larger than the other.
Any input on gender and breed would be welcomed!

That is great luck! I agree with you. The only cockerel seems to be the one in the last photo

Looks like all pullets!
Except for the one in that last photo!
