    ...I see several that look like roosters. Most of them seem to have saddle feathers, but it is hard to tell cause it looks like they are missing tail feathers and wing tips...how old are they now?

    Looks like you have a splash, and maybe a blue hen. Most look like roosters.
    The one blue that looks like a hen is in the first picture, the one off to the side
    And you might have a black hen also, the one facing away in the picture with the 2 blacks.

    Quote:x2--I see no hen except the GL and they are ameraucanas and are going to start crowing REALLY soon!

    Also-whomever it was that gave you FREE hens--knew they weren't hens.. and gave them away in a hurry!
