    #1 Looks like a pullet
    #2 Looks like a cockerel
    #3 Looks like a pullet
    #4 I am not sure, however I have a roo with the same colors!!

    I would agree with the EE thought...but are those feathers on the legs?

    #2 definitely looks like a cockerel - much larger & redder comb than #3 of the same breed. I would guess pullets on the others.

    I don't know the breeds - I originally thought EE on the white ones, but yours have feathered legs, single comb, clean faces, & yellow legs (none of these are typically easter egger traits).

    #4 is definitely a cockerel too. Females don't get the color plumage.
