    Its hard to tell on the 12 day olds but #7 on the 43 day olds is a cockerel. The pullets will have a lighter color breast area and a smaller comb. If you look at #7 and and #8 you will see the difference in color in the breast feathers and the comb size is on #7 is bigger. Better photos of their combs would make it easier. Also the pullets will have a V on their heads.
    If I remember correctly the males heads are lighter with no V.
    So just guessing 1,4,6 could be males as well, but thats why a head shot with the comb showing would be helpful.

    #2 has the extended line past the eye so I say pullet. She is a cutie!

    I read on Pap's Poultry site that if they have the extended eye liner they are girls, hope that helps.
