    I'm far from an expert, but I'd say 1 and 2 are cockerels, 3 is a pullet and 4 not sure. Don't worry, the experts will be along to sort you out.

    Definitely the first two are cockerels - no. 3 is a pullet , not sure on # 4 . Would be better if we knew how old they were& what breed the parents were...
