    I'd say cockerel. It has super pointy tail feathers, and has a tall stance. Super pretty chick.

    Too young yet, but my guess would be a pullet.

    I think it is a pullet also, nice full bushy crest. Males have rock star streamers. How old? Are all the photos the same bird but, different ages? The last photo doesn't look like the others.
