that mAkes since why you have so many roosters. "Straight run " means that they have not been sexed,so they are most likely to be roosters. If you want hens you need to get "pullets" not "straight run " . Also people who give chickens away are most likely roosters or have something wrong with them. But yours look healthy so they are probably roosters. Amercanas will lay blue eggs if they are females but I think they are males although ameracanas are hard to tell.
