    Definitely boys. Most of mine don't really show much spur development until about six months in, though growth rates vary, of course.

    The brown looks like he's got Marans in him, with that short tail and skinny neck; I think crossbreed is really likely.

    He shouldn't be a crossbreed, he came from ideal. He also shouldn't be a boy so who knows.:idunno:idunno

    Then he probably is purebred, though maybe of questionable quality. We'll see what @JedJackson and @Gray Farms think.

    Here are two more pictures. Is the white one an EE? I'm questioning everything at this point. 20190513_185837.jpg 20190513_191053.jpg

    Easter Egger & Welsummer. Both are undoubtedly cockerels. Sexing is only 90% accurate at best "with the exception of sexlinks". So even when you order/buy pullets from a hatchery there is still a chance you'll get cockerels.
