    The three in the center are cockerels. The one under the chair is a pullet.

    The mostly cream one and the red are definite cockerels. Male specific saddle feathers on both.

    These two are definite boys. Take a close look at the feathers on the back. See how they are long, thin, and pointed. Those are specific to males. Now compare to the rest of your birds.

    agree with Gray Farms, no wonder the lone pullet is hiding under the chair
