These are barnyard mutts that we hatched from eggs given to us from a friend. Any ideas on the gender & breeds? They are 5 weeks old. We incubated the all & they hatched within 30 hours of each other. The breeds they would of came from are buff orpingtons, australorps, wyandottes, cinnamon queen, marans, possibly barneveldor, Easter Eggers, and Plymouth Rock. I know it's early for any definites, I just want to know some opinions on mixed breeds. I heard both sides of the argument that you can't alone go by how big & red the comb/waddles or that you can. Let me know what you think. You can post your response in the order the pictures have posted. Thanks for your help!

At 5 weeks anything showing dangling pink/red wattles and larger combs will be a cockerel. So you have a nice selection of boys. Your solid white one looks to be a pullet for sure and hopefully the black one (last photo) as well.

Here's are two photos of our Orpingtons at 42 days old to show you the difference:
