    What about these two? They all look the same to me. I think we were had by someone knowing we were new to the chicken world.

    If they all have those long, thin, pointed feathers near the base of the tail, they are all male.

    Im pretty certain that the other two are cockerels as well, but they aren't aggressive yet so we are waiting on their fate.
