    Too young to tell for sure, but I'm guessing cockerel.

    I'm going to say cockerel for now, based on body shape and stance, but it is too young to tell.

    Too young to make an accurate guess.

    If I was forced to, I'd say male.

    ~~Can anyone tell me if these are roosters? If so I need to give them away. The one in the back crows all the time. The one in the front tries to crow but it does not sound very good.

    If they are crowing, they are roosters. Hens do not crow.
    They look like roosters physically too.
    So yeah. Roos.

    The first chick on the thread is young, but leaning toward male

    The second pic is two males.

    To the OP- too young to tell. Try reposting in a few weeks or so
