    How many birds total? Can you separate the pics so we can get better enlargement?

    from what I can see, left to right
    ?, pullet, pullet
    cockerel (I think), pullet, pullet
    ?maybe cockerel, maybe cockerel, ?

    ages of the birds helps with sexing also.

    Hi,
    There are six total chickens and they are 9wks in the pictures. I will post each one separately.

    Yeah...larger pics would help. If the EE with the whitish/grayish neck doesn't have any red feathers coming in on the wings, then I'd think all pullets except possibly the polish. I really don't know enough about polish to tell whether that sporadic crest coming in would indicate anything. Normally females (at least with silkies) will have a much more even looking crest, even if poor/pet quality. So I would watch that one...
