    You have a bunch of blue Ameraucana cockerels there. This wild-patterned Easter Egger, center photo, is a pullet:

    And the one in the center of this photo is an Easter Egger cockerel:

    There was a reason they were auctioned, looks like to me. Almost all I see are male, only a couple of pullets in view. I haven't gone picture by picture but I see a TON of saddle feathers.

    See the feathers on my blue Orpington that I circled? ALL with a pointy, shiny, skinny fringe like that are cockerels.

    And a black Ameraucana cockerel I had years ago:
