    I see 2 for sure cockerels in the bunch.. The white one might be a roo too but i'd need a better pic of him. Also, your BLRW looks a bit like a golden laced wyandotte.. Where did you get these chicks from?

    please wait until they are six weeks, then post pics of their combs. They are too young to reliably sex.

    too young. Please post more photos of the bodies and combs in a few weeks. Also the first chick is a proper blue laced red, the blue will lighten as she grows up and molts. A lot of people call the splash laced reds "blue laced red" , but as a breeder myself I can say there is a difference, blues have blue lacing, splash laced has white lacing due to 2 copies of the diluted gene

    I think you have 2 cockerels, but I’m not an expert:)

    This is a blue laced red pullet at 7 weeks

    And this is the same girl at 18 weeks old.
    As you can see the blue laced red chicks change a lot, the blue lightens and the red grows in.
    In saying that, one of your chicks is a blue laced red and the others are gold laced and silver laced. All very pretty :)
