    Chicks #1 and 3 are female. Chick #4 I think is male. And I'm not sure about #2, male?

    The last one looks like a BR cockerel, he has yellow legs and wider white bands, than his barring. The second one I believe is a Black australorp. What age are they in the pictures?

    Are they all the same age. The first bird looks older.

    The second one is NOT a black australorp, I've had them. It looks like it is showing some barring

    The 2nd one looks (is) like a Black Sex Link roo. I can tell because of the white under his chin and how he I mostly black. BSL roosters look like barred rocks, that's why he has the barring. I definitely think BSL roo.
