    Breeds and age would be helpful, maybe close up photos of comb also.

    Maybe those familiar with the breed may be able to sex them. If i recall correctly, aren't they a slow maturing breed? Possibly posting again in another 4 weeks or so may be better. From posture alone, it seems that the chick in the background of the last pic could be a cockerel.

    I guessed they were brahmas- feathers on legs and look to be big, husky chicks. I know they are a slow developing breed so maybe post again with new photos in a month.
