    They all look like roosters, though, I'd like to see a different picture of the black bird standing to be sure.

    In the first picture both are roosters. In the second picture the one taking a dust bath seems so have rounded saddle feathers so looks like a hen to me.

    The white one is a cockerel, probably a White Plymouth Rock. The other one may be a pullet, but I'm not sure about "her" breed.

    The white one looks like a white Leghorn.

    The black one looks like a Dominique-based Black Sexlink.

    The pea comb on the second one makes me think Easter Egger. I think its a pullet.
