    Do you know how old they are? If younger than about 10 weeks, all of them look like mixed breed cockerels. The white ones with the red patches on their wing are certainly cockerels; red in that area is almost always a sign of a rooster.

    Agree. The black one might be mostly Australorp. The whiter one are likely males of a Red Sex Link. These are commercial layers of the Hubbard/ISA/Warren type where the males are not wanted or needed. The females hatch out a dusty rust color and males mostly white, making sexing them at hatch possible.

    All roos, the two white ones look like red sex links not sure on the other one.
