    Does anyone know what breed chickens I have? I thought they were EEs but now I think not.

    They do resemble Lakenvelders a little - maybe research a few pictures and see what you think?

    All mixed breeds. And mostly boys.

    Well, unfortunately I knew they were mostly boys. Will so many roosters cause my girls not to lay?

    They can cause too much stress for the girls to lay if they are constantly chasing them around to mate.

    I have them separated now. I have been planning on getting rid of most of the roosters but haven't gotten around to it.
