    I'm going to say the 2nd pic on the left is a lavender boy that is posing as an ostrich. [​IMG] Can't see the other one well enough.

    On the blacks, I say pullet, pullet, roo. Just based on feathering and comb size.

    I think 1 & 4 are definite pullets. 2 looks like a definite roo. The others are hard to tell, their comb size and color are in-between [​IMG]
