    The first and last ones are the only cockerels I see. The rest appear to be pullets.

    You could list them in the auctions if you don't want to eat them.

    Also, adding your location (city AND state) in your profile will allow people to contact you if they live nearby.

    I'm so glad you posted this. I have 16 RIR and we really thought they were all hens. They are 23 weeks old. They started laying about a month ago and the last couple of days, we've gotten 15 eggs a day. today I was out in the yard and all the chickens were gathered around me. I was petting them and they were doing their little squatting thing til I got to one who would not let me touch it and actually got a little aggressive. Then I started really looking at it and started thinking he looked an awful lot like a rooster. Well I thought that I would post a pic but alas I am new and can't post pics yet. But.....he looks just like the one in the last picture. So now we have a dilemma.....
