    The dark one is definitely a hen.

    would you say the rest of the barred look to be male?

    You only have one barred pullet. The lighter ones are definitely male.

    Are you gonna keep 1 or get rid of them all, or what are you doing with them?

    I agree, I believe all the lighter ones are cockerels
