    Our first rooster made himself known and we know we have more in the flock but aren't sure which. (First time chicken people here)

    We have a mixture of Ameraucanas, Easter Eggers, and a few SLWs.

    Any ideas?

    I'm pretty positive on the other three, but you might hang on to the black one for a bit longer just in case I'm wrong. Those tail feathers look awfully roo-ish though.

    2, 7 and 9 are definite cockerels.

    5 and 8 look pullet-ish, but how old are they and can we get comb shots to be sure.

    I'll try and upload a few more when I get home tonight. I'm so sad that so many are turning out to be roosters. It's always the pretty ones!

    Here is #5... my precious Mcmuffin. If she is a rooster I'll be heartbroken.

    The other black chickens like to run away from me so I got only blurry shots. Seeing them together I'm pretty sure I've got 2 roosters and 2 hens.
