    How old are they? Without knowing the age, this is what I think:

    All of your Barred birds: Cockerels
    Polish: Pullets, though they are still a bit too young to tell for sure
    Black birds: One cockerel, one pullet.

    Your barred birds are all roosters, and one of your black ones is a rooster too. I can't tell with the Polish, but for now, they look like pullets.
