    Any takers on the White ones and the really big one (one to the left of the white one in the top picture)? Not the best shots I know - and I will try to get better ones.

    The white one(s) looks like a Delaware. Though I'm not sure what gender any of them are. The big one could possibly be a barred of some sort. Idk

    Hope I could help!!!

    The one to the left of the white is definitely a rooster. He has a bigger comb than the others and looks a lot bigger in size. Have no clue what breed it is though.

    They look like mixed birds with barred ancestry. I agree, both cockerels.

    So, our alpha rooster (Blue Cochrin) tried to jump on the big one's back on the pictures above yesterday. One of my kids said that the bird made some sort of noise - which may or may not have been a crow, hard to tell from a 7 year old's description. So, either the big one is a hen or our Roo (Fat Albert) is as confused as we are.

    not confused it is a cockerel you can tell that by the coloration and the hackles. he was jumped by the other probably as a sign of dominance.
