    4 - OE - big pink comb, wattles, short tail, no feathers on neck and back, Roo??
    5 - OE - smaller pink comb, wattles, short tail, no feather on neck and back, Roo??
    6 - OE - smaller comb, not as pink, no wattles, longer tail, full feathers, Pullett??

    3 and 4 are possible cockerels, 5 is a cockerel, the others I'm either unsure of or are looking like pullets.

    8 & 9 "might" be pullets. But the rest are cockerels.

    Give it a few more weeks. As of now I agree with Gray Farms but a couple of the others (1 & 7) could be pullets too.

    Wait a few more weeks, you wouldn't want to mistakenly sell a pullet as a cockerel
