    All the white-ish birds are cockerels. Need better pictures of the back ones to be sure.

    First pic is probably pullets, but need better pics of the combs to be sure. They look like Aussies.
    Second pic is a Lohman (red sex link) cockerel.
    Third pic looks like an Aussie cockerel, but again a better comb shot will help.
    Fourth pic are both cockerels. Not sure on the breed of the all white bird, but it's not a Sussex with those yellow legs. My first thought is Leghorn. The red and white bird is a Lohman's cockerel.

    If the all white one is a Leghorn, could it maybe be a pullet? Since Leghorn combs develop rather quickly and can be quite large? I'm not familiar with them at 7 weeks, but I have some in the incubator, so I'm just curious.

    I don't think so. a pullet can get a larger comb early, and they'll redden up earlier than other breeds, but at only 7 weeks a pullet, even a Leghorn, shouldn't have that much red to the comb.
