    #1 and #3 are both girls. #2 looks like a roo. The last pic is fuzzy, but I am guessing pullet. I would say they are all mixes, but the bottom one could be a cochin.

    #1 and 3 look to be hen and roo , both EE's. I say this due to the dark legs and feet. #2 has feathered feet so could be a barred cochin roo. It could be a CM roo but feathering is too light to be pullet. Barred hens are usually darker than the males. This is true even in chicks.

    #4 is cochin probably blue and while it's not a good pic, I think pullet.

    Roos tend to darken in the comb sooner than pullets. Of course no one can say for sure.
