    How old? Top definitely is a cockerel, but the last almost looks like a pullet to me. [​IMG]

    I'd say all but the last look like cockerels, in that case.

    Last bird is a pullet. The others are all cockerels.

    You can research keeping them all in a bachelor pad, although I'm not sure why you'd want to. They're going to be freeloaders who will simply eat and make a LOT of noise and poop. I'm not opposed to keeping roosters at all, but I see no reason to commit to keeping a bunch of males for life if you got them by mistake.
