    the 2 dark ones are pullets, they are a common hen color pattern, roosters aren't colored like that.
    White one might be a rooster, the red on the wings is awful dark, but the comb is small. I'd keep an eye on that one.

    I agree, that white one is kind of suspicious for a rooster. Maybe post pics again in 4 weeks?

    The two dark ones look like pullets. However, the white one has some red patches on its wings, so I think that it is a male.
     
  6. To me they all look like pullets.

    The two darker colored ones are pullets. The white one *may* be a cockerel. I would watch for more comb development and if the color on the wings turns darker.
