Help Identifying Chickens

Thread Starter 

I bought these chickens from Atwoods in the "heavies" bin.  Can anyone tell me what kind they are and maybe even whether they're male or female?

The cockerel might be a Jersey Giant. Hard to say really. I mean looking at the other birds I'd not put them in the "heavy" class. Medium class has a lot of options out there as to what they'd be. Heavy class is really Brahma, Giant and maybe few others like Cochin. That's the Heavy.
