Any suggestions/guesses/thoughts would be very appreciate!! These eggs came from a neighbor who works on a farm where they are several roos and a bunch of hens - and all the eggs were brown and hatched by my broody BA (but there are no BA at the farm). Any guesses (especially about sex) would be appreciated!!

I'm new at all this, so don't take my opinions for experience LOL.
As for breed, no clue, but in the pictures- the white one on the bucket looks like a definate roo- he even has wattles coming in.
The dark one with the yellow spot on his head looks like a boy to me also. The others, I don't know.

They are 2 weeks old yesterday - so I know its early to try to tell. Also, let me ask this: there are bue egg-layers at the farm where these chicks came from - but all the eggs were brown. Can egg color be passed down through the father? If a father with the blue egg trait mates with a brown egg laying mom, will the resulting pullet's eggs be olive? Could they ever be blue?
