    The top 5 look like roos, but the one in the bottom pic is a hen. Probably a black sex-link.

    Not sure about the top pic but the bottom one looks like one of my EE's I got from Ideal.

    All very nice by the way!

    The reds might be hens, they look like red sex-links. Red sex-link roosters are usually tan/white with a little bit of red, compared to the completely red hens.

    Hen on left, roo on right:

    That's what I thought. Looks like I have four candidates for the crock pot. The most attractive rooster (back left) is very attentive to the lady and purrs to her. They will be spending the winter together and in the spring I will add a few more birds. Thanks all.

    I don't think you should put them into the crockpot without first posting some larger, close-up photos. They may be boys, but it is really too hard to tell from your photo. Hens have large combs too if they are getting close to laying age. I don't see any roo tails and they are too far away for us to see whether or not the saddle or sickle feathers are pointed.

    How old are these 5 chickens? Can you take some close-ups and post them here?

    I think this one might be a little better. Darn chickens cluster around my feet looking for grapes making it hard to get a picture.
