Going purely off their combs I would say :

Chick 1- Boy (Borderline)
Chick 2 - Girl
Chick 3 - Girl
Chick 4 - Boy

It's tough sexing just on a front on look.

Other ways to tell is whether the feathers on the back are more rounded than pointed. The feathers near the tail. Rounded = Girl. Pointy = Boy.

Can you keep boys?

They are really cute by the way :-D

Cheers
Chicka-Dee
