    Ignore the guinea in the first pic,(if you can see the back of him), i know he's a he. I know you cant see them very well, but any opinions are fine.

    They all look like hens to me. I don't see any saddle/hackle feathers in the bunch.

    They have big combs and wattles sure, but that's common in production breeds (and some others). The cock/cockerels would be much larger.. When figuring out the sex you need to pay attention to if the feathers are pointed or rounded in the hackles/saddles/tail. How big they are, how they carry themselves, and as well as the plumage/color. Most breeds will look differently in males than females IE males will be lighter or not as fine in color (or can be finer) etc.

    Agreed. All hens.
