Could be any number of black breeds: Australorp, Sex-link, Orpington, etc. You should get a better idea of breed as they get older. As for gender, it is too young to be sure, but I don't see any cockerel traits yet.

Does it have puffy cheeks? If so, it looks like a Blue Ameraucana or Easter Egger. Otherwise, I would guess Blue Andalusian. It is too young to tell gender for sure, but once again, I don't see any cockerel traits yet.

I'm leaning towards cockerel based on the beginnings of wattle development/redness. Wyandottes can be tricky to sex until they're older, though.

Looks like a pullet for now.

Are those pictures at the ages stated? Those birds look quite a bit younger than the ages. Are you keeping them overly warm, maybe inhibiting feather growth? Here are some of mine at 5ish weeks...

Maybe they told me they were older than they were when I bought them?

They're still in the brooder with a heat lamp, but the two older ones are getting quite tall
