    It would help to know how old they are. I don't see any obvious boys at this point. Your wyandotte (first photo) could go either way depending on age. Pullets and cockerels tend to get pink combs pretty early in that breed. I think the size and color of the wattles is a better indicator of gender for them at that age. I'm leaning towards female on this one but age and a photo of those wattles would help to confirm that.

    The one in the second photo has a pretty good sized comb but it isn't pink yet.. it's probably too soon to say but that one looks a bit masculine to me. It might still be a pullet though!

    The rest are looking like pullets to me so far.

    All of them are looking fairly pullet-y. If any were to be cockerels, I would think that the Marans would be one.

    All of them appear to be pullets, for now. Keep an eye on the Black Copper Marans, though--it has a certain cockerel "look."

    I'm still thinking that they are likely all pullets. The Black Copper Marans still doesn't look like a definite rooster.
