    Still not sure what breed they are. Any ideas? Think one is a RIR maybe... was told they may not all actually be cockerels...

    I'm not sure of the breed, but you may have one pullet.

    the red one is a rir roo and the one on the left is a silver laced wyandotte, could be a boy or a girl. I'm not sure about the other one.

    the one on the left is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. It MAY be a pullet. Can you take a picture of just that bird? Side view? I do not think the top one is a barred rock. The chicks do not look like what a BR would look like. The brown/red bird (RIR?) is a roo in my opinion.

    Agree with the SLW and RIR...I have both Barred Rocks and Cuckoo Marans...That' a "bad" Barred Rock or BR mix as far as coloring. Bet it will be your best Roo...always the way! [​IMG]

    Agree with the RIR or NHR and the BR being mix of something else maybe and the SLW might be a she, skinny legs and no comb, but time will tell.
