    Bottom 2 are males I reckon and top possibly a pullet or very slow developing male.

    Best wishes.

    Chick #2 looks like a cockerel to me, but I'm thinking pullet for now on the other chicks. It is a little young to tell for sure, though. The other two chicks may simply be slower developing males.
