Barred rock hens will have more black, roosters have more white. Or so is what I've learned. I'm sorry I can't help you with the others.

These are the two I think are roosters, barred Rock and rohdie. These two breeds of chicken are very similar as they have grown. -thanks

If the barred rocks are pure and not mixed breeds then all the barred rocks are hens. At 4 weeks you could tell the difference here is my pair at a young age the male is the lighter one, males are double barred.
