    I was hoping maybe some might be pullets since they gave me so many extras. But I am not to sure

    Its too young to tell for sure whether you have any pullets. However, I do think that its possible that some of them are females. I see a couple birds that have darker barring and smaller combs, so you could have some pullets.

    You might get lucky. But packing peanuts are usually roos.

    How old are they? Check the flight feathers..females feather out faster
    yeah I'd say extras are roos

    All those white head spots sort of say cockerels.

    Headspots? Sounds like they are a barred chicken....only black sex links male chicks have the headspot.
