    I think it looks like 3 roo's or maybe 2 roo's and a hen.

    At 6 weeks, any that have noticeable pink combs are cockerels.
    Of the 3 in the cardboard box, at least 2 of them are males. You can't see the comb on the third one in that picture and I can't identify which one that chick is in the other photos.
    Male specific feathers (pointy hackle and saddle feathers) don't come in until later (after 10 weeks....usually nearer 12-14) and colour will not indicate sex as sex linkage is a first generation characteristic only.

    With that strong light and shade on the photo, it is still not a good clear shot of all 3 of them but I am leaning towards all 3 cockerels.
