Newbie here, Do I have hens or roosters?

Hi there I have a White Leghorn who is 9 weeks today. My father in law thinks we have a rooster. I'm new to the chicken world, can you all help me out?

I also have a Barnevelder and a Welsummer who are 8 weeks old. Now I'm not sure which is which.
I'm wondering what the one is that has the comb and waddle. (Hope I'm using the terms correctly.) The one with the comb my FIL also thinks is a rooster. These are hatchery chicks, so the ages are based on what the age the hatchery told me they were when I purchased them which was 2 day old chicks.

Thank you for your help!

Here is Foghorn:

And here is what I think is our Barnevelder, please correct me if I'm wrong. We purchased a Barnevelder and Welsummer the same day. And is this a hen or rooster?

I believe this on below is my Welsummer? And I'm pretty sure this one is a hen

Thank you for all your help!

Your "Barnavelder" is your Welsummer and your "Welsummer" is your Barnavelder. The Barnavelder is a pullet but the Welsummer is a cockerel. Your Leghorn is a pullet.
