    #3 look like Black Sex-link pullets
    #4 (from left to right) Black Australorp probably pullet, Black Sex-link pullet, Black Sex-link pullet, Barre Rock or Black Sex-link cockerel
    #5 Black Australorp Pullet
    #6 Barred Rock or Black Sex-link cockerel.

    [​IMG] Second and last are the same bird. Is that a rooster? What are Pullets?

    Pullets are young, female chickens. All of your chickens in the picture look pullet![​IMG]

    Of those last 4 photos, the bird on the far left in the nest box in the first one looks to be a cockerel because it has an obvious red comb but it's much easier to identify them from an individual profile shot of each bird in good natural light. The barred bird in the second and fourth photo is also a cockerel. The lighter barring, developed pink comb and huge thick shanks all scream male to me. The third photo isn't clear enough to make a judgement.

    Looks like you got your wish then if you are wanting him to be male.
