So.. I'm new to chickens. My husband brought these 4 home on September 12. We don't know the specific ages... Was told 4-6 weeks at the time we got them. Also, was told all girls.... But I've had few people tell me I may have some roosters in the bunch. I don't really know much about chickens or how to tell gender. I don't really know the breeds either. Any help is greatly appreciated :D

Ok, I think that the brown chickens are either Warrens, or a hybrid chicken between a Rhode Island red and something else! I think the grey one might be a Speckeldy! Obviously its a bit difficult to tell by the pictures but I think thats right! When I had a rooster I couldn't tell either but I noticed that it stood up a lot taller than the others. Also, you will be able to tell soon because he'll start crowing!:)

They look like pullets, but it really depends on age. If that first and last one are only 3 months old, then cockerels. If they are closer to 5-6 months old then I'd be sure they are pullets about to lay. 2nd and 3rd one are definitely female. 2nd one looks like a barred rock. Brown ones look like a mix maybe of rhode island red. But I'm not that best at breeds.
