    I believe all of them except number 2 are roos. Number two is questionable to me.

    Yes, they all appear to be cockerels. Unless you want to keep a lot of roosters around, I would post them on Craigslist, put up "for sale" advertisements around town (if possible--try asking feed stores, etc.), and post about them in the BYC Buy, Sell, and Trade section. Or you could make lots of chicken soup.
