    Picture not so clear. Does not show faces and combs and suck like. From what I can tell though those are Easter Eggers.

    I think I see some Easter Eggers and I think a sliver laced Wyandotte, the pics are hard to tell by. Going by color alone I think I see 3 roosters and the SLW that seems to be very slow feathers may be a roo too. We would need a few more pics to really give an opinion, side views and face/comb pics. How old are they roughly?

    Probably all mixed breed birds, and I also see three roosters. If you want specific guesses as to the mix, you'll need to post profile pics of each bird, including legs and comb.

    Really difficult to tell with those top-down and far-away photos. Look at the top of the forum, and you'll see a sticky thread that describes the photos that we're looking for.

    So far, I see at least two Easter Egger cockerels, and a probable Silver Laced Wyandotte cockerel. They could be the males from someone's straight run hatchery order.

    The 3 with the Reddish tones over there backs and wings look to be roosters. Definitely the 2 larger ones, the one on the bottom of this pc and the one on top in the center. The one to the left I suspect is a rooster also.

    Look like mongrel or mutt chickens to me and more pullets than cockerels.
