    The two biggest ones look like roosters and the two smaller ones look like pullets. You can see the feathers in the tail starting on the two bigger birds that look like the beginnings of a rooster tail. I'm sure if the pic was closer you could see the sickle feathers starting to come out too. And the bigger birds legs are much thicker than the pullets. Usually another sign of a male. You can probably see buttons starting for spurs if you look too...

    So they are the longer feathers that come out from the top? I added a closer up pic of one of the little ones is that a feather at the top of the tail?
