    What breed and sex do y'all think these are? The 2 grey ones and the orange one are supposed to be pullets and the brown & tan multi colored one is supposed to be the cockerel.[​IMG]

    #3 looks like a cockerel possibly #1. Not sure on breed though they may be mixes.

    How old are they? (I'll assume about 6 weeks of age?)

    If so, the orange and black look to be your pullets....the others look to be roosters.

    It is hard to tell by the way they are perching on your arm (photographing them in profile while standing in a natural stance is better)....however, they appear they may have some game in them.

    Do their wing tips hang below their body line or meet it? (As in they look like they really need to grow into their wings)?

    I think they are likely mixes, possibly with game due to the lankiness (wing tip location would help id).
