    How old are they? if younger than laying age (around 20 weeks), I would agree with equibling. Are they crowing yet? That will kinda let you know..lol

    The brahmas are roos. Not as familiar with the others, but I'd say roos as well.

    Lots O' Roosters you can tell because they have longer cicle shaped tails and saddle feathers and their combs (on top of their heads) are very red.

    Good Luck,

    Looks like hackle feathers on the capes there in that first pic - therefore roos.

    The red star in the 2nd pic looks like a hen......
    the males are usually much lighter (like pic #3)

    I'd say all roosters, although some of the production breeds do develop combs faster than other breeds and the bird with the most white in the third pic might be a pullet because you can't see its tail to see if it is developing sickle/saddle feathers, but I highly doubt it...
