    The dark brown chicken in pic 5 looks like a definite rooster with that big tail at such a young age.

    I think they're about the right age to do this method which I always use.

    So, put a card (card board) up against their neck and look at their feathers that are laying on the card. If they're pointed they're male if they're rounded they're female.

    Everyone looks female to me, if the ages are correct.
