    Yep, normal.

    Your red sex link will probably be the one that freaks you out the most, cause she'll likely mature first. But, since she's a sex link (meaning the sex is linked to the color of the bird), she's guaranteed to be female.

    Your Welsummer is also positively a female. males of that breed have black breasts, your bird has a nice brownish/red color that is only found on females.

    Your Marans bird has darker barring only found on pullets.

    That only leaves your Wyandotte that could be in doubt. Wyandottes have a rose comb instead of the straight comb all your other breeds have, but the boys still pink up pretty early.
