    From what I can see in these pics you posted, they all look like hens, minus the black and gold rooster in the lower left of pic 2 and the reddish rooster in the upper left of pic 3. The chicken in center of pic 3 Im iffy on but it looks like a pullet, do you know its cross?

    They look like hens to me, but how old are they?

    If they are 7months old they are all pullets and all should be at point of lay. You will be seeing some blue and green eggs soon! They are EEs.
