    I believe #1 to be a male and cannot tell on the others.

    The coop
    All the dark ones look like pullets, but the white one might almost be a rooster.

    id say the 2nd black one is a roo, just because the crest has streamer-looking feathers, would you be able to get photos of their combs? you might have t wet their crest a bit to get a good shot. at that age my roo was noticeably heavier than my pullets, and he had thicker feeling legs
