Any idea if these are boys or girls?

The buff orps are 5 weeks, 4 days old:

BO 1

The Cochin is 4 weeks old:

This one (5 wks 4 days old) was supposed to be a BO but I think one of the white leghorns from the bin next to it got in there - is it a WL? Boy or girl?

BO's
1) Rooster
2) Pullet (I have less confidence in this one than 1 & 3)
3) Rooster

I'll go back and look at the EE's now. I know BO's better though.

Edited to add:
I am going to let someone else guess the EE's as I have never had those. Not really sure on your unknown bird either. The comb makes me think roo but the wattles are small.

I was thinking the same about the BO's... bo 1 and 3's waddles are getting red already, but not #2. Anyone think differently?

What about the others?

Thanks!

I definitely can't have roosters. I figure with the EEs, cochin and WL, I can't be certain yet if they are hens or roos.

But - with the Buff Orps - should I feel confident 1 & 3 are roos with the only hen being #2?

If those are roos without a doubt I need to start looking for homes for them and save the room in the brooder for the others.
