They all look like roosters except maybe the white one.
If you zoom in closely on your white bird you can see pointed saddle feathers near the tail and what appear to be pointed hackle feathers.
Can you take other photos?
Also, what are the ages?
Born 7-11! Thank you!
All look to be cockerels.

I'm gonna be so mad if they're all roosters.
I don't mind at all. Hens' feathers near their tail and slightly up the back are rounded ion the ends. Roosters feathers are pointed on the ends and they start developing sickle feathers as they age. The white chicken has the tell tale pointed feathers. You can see them on the side view picture of him. For earlier detection of male or female birds, most male chickens have a slow feathering gene. So they keep fuzz on their backs and don't develop feathers there until after their wings have filled out a lot. Females form feathers on their back. This works with most breeds so by the time they are ready to leave the brooder you can sex them.
All are cockerels except maybe the white one. We need better saddle pics of that one.
