    Sultan, and from what I can see from the angle of the photo, probably a cockerel.

    One of the easiest ways to tell whether you have a male or female from my experience is to simply look at the size of their feet compared to one that you know is female. A male will have a larger circumference of its legs and larger feet in general. I cannot visibly identify if those chickens in the second set of pictures are male or female.
