    I got these chickens from a neighbor down the road in May. I assume they were born in late March/early April. We thought they were all hens at first but 2 are definitely trying to crow. They sound broken though. I am thinking by reading and looking at pics that we actually have 3 roosters and 2 hens. I would love some opinions. Also, any idea what breeds they are?

    Here is the one that I am pretty sure is a rooster. He has spur bumps but nothing actively growing. #1

    All 5 are mixbreed. The males definitely have EE in their lineage so the hens probably do as well.
