    Speckled Sussex in first photo and blue colored bird in third photo are roosters. The others look like hens.

    That blue bird is a rooster, not sure about the sussex or if those are three different birds. The first picture especially, has some very suspicious tail feathers, but from what I can see in the picture I would expect more comb and wattle development if it is close to five months old. You might want to take some head shots for better guesses.

    For sure, the blue bird (Blue orpington?) is a male. A closer look at the Sussex's face and a better side view picture would help. I'm going to go with male for both of them, though.

    I am so frustrated so basically I have a whole hen house full of roosters the speckled Sussex were sold as 99% pullets go figure I would get the 1% roo so that would mean if your correct I have 4 roos and 3 pullets uggg I will try to get better pics of them tonight and post them on here its just hard they got attacked by our Grammies dog (which no longer lives with us) and lost two to a fox so they are quite skittish they are just starting to come around and get calm again. I thank you for all your help everybody
