    I bought these chickens from Atwoods in the "heavies" bin. Can anyone tell me what kind they are and maybe even whether they're male or female?

    The cockerel might be a Jersey Giant. Hard to say really. I mean looking at the other birds I'd not put them in the "heavy" class. Medium class has a lot of options out there as to what they'd be. Heavy class is really Brahma, Giant and maybe few others like Cochin. That's the Heavy.

    #1 maybe a Rhode Island Red
    #2 maybe a Welsummer
    #3 looks like a BSL pullet

    How old are they? could you get more pictures?

    Speckled Sussex, Partridge Rock, Black Sex Link? All look like pullets, except the first one may be a cockerel.
