    They do look like all males.
    But they're not leghorns.

    Red ear lobes and grey legs (and overall build)means the white birds are not leghorns. How old are they?
    The other two are males based on plumage

    I see three definite males, the white bird in the first two pictures, and the two red/barred birds in the last picture. Those two are mixed breeds. THe white one could be a white Jersey Giant, but probably is a mixed breed, too.

    Newby here and not really a bird identifier... but could the white ones be White Marans? They have red ears, combs and waddles, and grayish legs. I am attaching a picture I have of a White Maran Hen (not mine, I saved it from My Pet Chicken) 20180319_111330.png
