    To be sure of the sex you will proberly need to wait a couple of weeks for the combs to develop.

    I saw this thing for sexing.
    Grab there beak and dangle them. If they fight it's a rooster, if they dangle there a hen.

    Please don't dangle your chicks. Good way to injure them. Unless they are auto sexing, or sex linked, or you have a very practiced eye, you won't be able to tell until the combs and wattles start to increase in size and redden. Sometimes a cockrel can be picked out of the bunch by extra inquisitive or aggressive behavior.

    I would have to say the first three pictures are of a rooster. The comb and wattle are good size and turning red.
