    They all kind of look like cockerels to me.

    Hmm, I'm on the fence about the 2 barred birds. I would wait a couple of more weeks.

    It's easier to tell with age.

    Looks like the brown one on the right might be a roo by the size of it's comb, can't really see the first barred rock's comb so I cant tell, and the last picture with the barred rock seems like a hen to me.
