This is a bcm cockerel, I’m including him to compare to his two siblings from the same hatch. All three are 9 weeks old.

Next I have some Ameraucana I posted a while ago. I find them super hard to sex.. They are 10 weeks old.
There are 2 splash

And 2 black, one is not pictured, I’m fairly certain that one is a pullet but I’m 90% sure this one is a roo.

And a couple Orpingtons, I have 3 chocolate but didn’t get pictures of all 3 and two that were supposedly chocolate but hatched out mauve? Lavender? They are 9 weeks old.

First and last pictures show roosters. Your blue, and possibly black Americana may be rooster. Not positive. The rest look like pullets to me.

I think the only for sure pullets are one of the splash Ameraucana and the Orpington and the second BCM.

One of those splash makes me nervous, the blue and black Ameraucana look worrisome as well. The one blue for sure is a boy that’s getting contrasting color shades. It’s hard to tell which bird is which in the multiple photos.

I know the photos are confusing, it's hard to get good pictures of them individually sometimes! I'll give it another few weeks and then update this post again. Thanks for your input :)
