    All female.
    The red with white ones are Red Sex Links (commonly sold as Golden Comets, Red Star, Cinnamon Queen, etc).

    oh thank god they are all female lol the red ones we've had for a while and they are laying but the little black one with the long tail i was worried about. The gender is more important than breed but im interested to know the breed of the black ones with the yellow necks they are much faster and i cant believe they can fly so high! Thanks for the info [​IMG]

    She's female. That coloring is a wild-type partridge. A male would have a solid black chest and dark red neck, shoulder, and back feathers.
    She's probably an Old English Game bantam mix.

    Might also be a brown leghorn with those white earlobes. How old is she?
