Bought 12 chicks labeled as barred rock. Not real sure what they are now. Can anyone help with breed and genders. They are 4 weeks olds

Here's a pic for size reference. This is why I'm confused. The ones that obviously look roo are so much smaller than the "hens"

Oh and this black and white is from the same batch too. Totally different than the rest!

I might not give up hope on pullets for the first two pics (are they the same bird?). Pretty dark barring and the second one looks like it has a dark wash on the legs. Will defer to those that know more, but at 4 weeks the comb size on my BR pullet was similar to that and had me convinced she was a cockerel. But the comb stopped growing and her head grew into it. That said, there's definitely some wattle action that mine didn't have. Good luck!

The first 2 are the same bird. It acts sweeter like a pullet but it's twice the size of the 2 barred roos. There are about 6 that are a lot bigger. And they have been since about day 4 or so. Was sure they were roos until started coloring out. Now I'm so confused🤯. Kinda was thinking maybe they are pullets that are a jg mix..
