    The brownish ones are female and the white one, by the comb, looks like a male. But I cant see any hackle or saddle feathers in those pictures.

    They look like mixes, but I could be wrong.

    The white and black one could still be a female, and that's my guess. Some breeds just have HUGE combs, like Leghorns.

    The 2 brown ones actually look like dorkings.
