Polish chicken. I think I might be able to say this is a rooster. 4 weeks and 4 days - your opinion?

    Hi chicken friends. I am trying to weed out my roosters as I can. Eventually I will want to end up with only hens (I live in the city). I feel like I am pretty confident on 1 of the 6 right now. Below are 5 pictures of two of the chicks. Pictures 1, 2, and 5 are the one I think is a rooster. Pics 3 and 4 are one that I assume is either a pullet or at least not a developed rooster (yet). So, given the comparison, does anyone else feel with great certainty that this dude is a rooster? They are both the same age - 4 weeks and 4 days old (as of 3/14/15). The spiky hair and comb/waddle development are what I am going by. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    #1 and #5 look like cockerels to me.
