    My guess would be Rhode Island Reds, but I do not seem to be very good at guessing breeds or genders.[​IMG]

    I would say rir too, but I see at least 2 are roosters, the tail feathers that are irridacent and starting to droop down and long off the tail

    Unfortunately, the above is quite correct - you have a whole mess o' boys on your hands. All of the birds are showing characteristic male saddle feathers, dark glossy patches on the wings and flowing hackle feathers -- some are already showing sickle feathering in the tail.
