You have two boys and two girls.
Lavender #1 is male.
The other is a pullet.
Black bird is a cockerel.
Barnyard mix with the copper on her neck is female.

My kids and I are new to raising chickens and have four 6-week-old chicks. I'm pretty sure two are pullets, but we use some help sexing these two. The first one, Pip, is an Australorp and the second one, Sweet Pea, is maybe an Easter Egger? (Also, is it weird that the Australorp doesn't have any tailfeathers yet?) Thanks for any help!

Both are pullets.
It's not abnormal for the Australorp not to have a complete tail. I'm sure it will grow in fast.
