    These guys are from September or October hatchings. I think they're all cockerels. Although they are barnyard chickens, do you see a predominate breed (except the white one. I recognize his breed)? I have raised Leghorns for several years for their eggs but want to branch out into other colored eggs and other breeds. I can't keep all these cockerels but would keep at least one to give me some fertilized eggs to incubate. Suggestions there would be welcome as well. Thank you for any input!

    Need a better picture of 3 from the side.
    The rest have clearly visible male feathering.

    Thanks for your input. I'll try to get a better shot of #3. He/she kept following me too closely when I was taking pictures. LOL
