Breed and gender please

Thank you for your help
That looks like a Red Broiler to me. The bird seems far too light/orange to be sold as a Rhode Island Red, even from a hatchery. Legs are awful thick for a sex link pullet.

Hard to guess gender, but if that is the broiler, I would lean pullet. If Production Red, I'd probably lean cockerel.

Was the white one from a different batch?

That's my leghorn. we got several birds one day including leghorns. Then went back the next day and picked up some broilers Rhode Island Reds and red sex links. When I got those three kinds home they were all very similar in coloring I couldn't remember which bird was which
The one that is larger than every else is your broiler. The Rhode Island Red will have solid red feathers, no white at all. A chick with red feathers and some white feathers is your sexlink pullet.
