I got these from a straight run deal at the farm store. Not sure what they are or the sex. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

The colorful guy in the middle is a rooster, and so is the one with black splashes in the other picture. The white chick next to the roo in pic number 2 is a pullet. I can't see any of the other chicks well enough to say anything, though. Can you take a good sideview picture of each individual?

Dragons are a lot like cats. They sleep with one eye open, tail a-twitch, and will rain fiery death down upon you should you disturb them.

That was the 2 in question. All the others are pretty easy to figure out. Haha. What is the tell tail sign on those 2? Thanks!

I agree they're both males. Red Patches of Death on the wings are the giveaway, females don't get that color. Plus, you can see saddle feathers hanging down (the long, pointy feathers in front of the tail).

Fatal patches of red-ish doom? lol.png Love it.

The growing sickles on their tails, hackle feathers and large red comb shout rooster, and for an EE, the red brown shoulders are a male trait.
