    All the older ones look like boys to me, but I am new too.

    From what I understand - and it's not much:

    1, 2, 3 & 4 are boys. Boys have barred backs and the orangey brown flight feathers in lower wing.

    #1-4 look like boys to me, too -- don't have a clue on your blackshoulder but I'm sure one of the more experienced breeders will be along to figure it out for you.

    Very pretty chicks!
