    Any idea what breed they might be? Are they more than likely all males?

    they look like production reds. Most likely males

    yeah, that is what I was afraid of on both accounts. What am I supposed to do with these guys? I didnt want any chicks right now as I have 41 eggs in the brooder. I certainly didnt want 11 cockerels. I cant just kill them.

    Some feed stores take in boys for free and re-home them [​IMG]
