What breed are these chicks? Cochin? D'uccle?

Can anyone help me identify the breed/sex of these chicks? I am a Welsh Harlequin duck owner who got completely swept up in the fun and adoration of bantam chicks!

They are between 4 and 5 weeks old.

Agree with above--the red cochin's color is red. I'm not sure chick 5 isn't a dark Brahma, though.

D'uccles have beards, that makes an easy way to tell them apart.

Chick 4 - I know this one is a Frizzle... Curious if Frizzle owners out there think if it's a Roo or a hen? Looks like a pullet to me.
