    How old are they? The ones you guessed are cockerels definately look like cockerels. The first 2 pullets, just keep an eye on, but the others all really look like pullets, like you said.

    About 4 months. They are small due to me not having chick food available the from 10 weeks on.. Totally my fault though

    Which parent was the barred Rock? If the mother, the barred birds are all sex linked males.

    I have what I thought was a chicken but now thinking it is a rooster without spurs. Looks like your Easter Egger Cockerel just different coloring. Curious to find out what he/she is.

    They also were free range, so bugs anything they found or there momma found. Stuff that my jersey cow and horses spilt when I was feeding them etc.
