    I'm not sure if these are male or female, but I kind of wish to know. Any help would be grateful. Thanks!!

    The close white crested black in the third pic is a pullet. The rest are cockerels.

    The big wild crests with pointed feathers indicate boys. The smaller, more rounded crests with rounded feathers indicate girls. The buff laced one is kind hard to tell, it might be a pullet. The silver laced and the one white crested black are boys though.
