    pic 4 is a cockerel - look at that stance and demeanor, haha - little baby stink eye! (not to mention those nice red comb and wattles). i would guess that your millefleur is also a cockerel. [​IMG]
    btw, chick in pic 2 is absolutely ADORABLE! [​IMG]

    #1 - Pullet.
    #2 & #3 - It's hard to tell,but I'm pretty sure one of them might be a cockerel. ( Sorry if this isn't of any help. I'm not an expert on Polish. )
    #4 - Definite cockerel.
    #5 & #6 - Definite pullets.
    #7 - Cockerel.
