    It's super hard to see their faces. Can you get some head shots. Looks like the one on the very far right in the last picture is a male. They all look like EEs

    I'm thinking this bird is your only pullet.

    Yeah, they all look like EEs and the yellowish one looks like your only pullet.

    All of your birds are Easter Eggers. The bird above is your only pullet--the rest are cockerels.

    I'd pick the one that is nicest to you and the other birds, and the one that you like the most (prettiest, most interesting, etc).

    Roosters can live together rather peacefully, even for their whole lives. This is especially true if they are kept away from hens. With hens around, roosters are more likely to fight. You may not need to separate the males, but definitely separate them from the pullet, or they may make her life miserable though overmating and harassing.
