    I'm pretty new to backyard chickens and bought 5 EEs in the middle of February, so they're a little over 5 months. I'm thinking I have 1 roo but am not 100% sure. Any help on identifying him/her would be helpful. He/she is the tall multicolored one with black tail feathers.

    Yep, that one is a cockerel. The other EEs appear to be pullets.
