    I am no expert at all but to me #5 looks like a boy - his comb is really reddish looking.
    hopefully someone who knows will give you better help.

    I'd say all hens except for #5, but need a straight on pic to be more certain.

    Hi! Last spring was my first try with Easter Eggers, and for the longest time I was sure they were all roosters. As it turned out, only one was a boy, and 3 were girls.

    My EE rooster doesn't have much of a comb. His eyes and face stood out, sort of a harsh face with angry eyes. His long legs were the most obvious sign.

    The only one that might be a rooster is #3, judging by the look on its face.

    MyPerfectChicken: where did you get the chicks?

    Looking at the photos, most of them look female. Their eyes look gentle. #6 looks like 2 different chickens in each of the shots...?
