    The grey speckled bird in the upper left photo is a pullet. In the upper right photo, the chicken is a cockerel. The third photo is a pullet.

    I didn't see that you had added more pictures. Here are my guesses, for all of your birds:

    Upper left photo: Cockerel
    Upper right photo: The bird in front is a cockerel, the bird in back is a pullet
    Middle left photo: Pullet
    Middle right photo: Cockerel
    Last photo: Pullet

    And, I see that you just added another photo of a white bird. That bird looks like a pullet, though the comb is a little red.

    Where did you get them? I'm not sure on the grey one's breed. The white one with the black on its neck does look like a Light Sussex, the pure white bird might be a White Rock or Leghorn, and the cockerels and the brown pullets could be Welsummers.
