    so I kind of inherited this flock and I don't have a clue about some of them.

    This one is really neat and seems to get picked on a bit. Note the fancyish feathers on top of the head.

    This one is a little skittish and is camera shy.

    I'm almost certain this one is a rooster because I have seen him mount other chickens. Though I have not yet heard rooster crowing.

    This one is very similar in feathers but slightly different colors.

    Any insight on sex and or breed would be appreciated.

    More pictures can be taken if anyone thinks it would help.

    Thanx

    The top one looks like my red star rooster...not sure about the poof on the head though.....not sure about the other breeds but its looking like you have all roosters.....if you have seen one mounting the others chances are he is just the top roo.

    I would say all cross-bred roosters. The first may have some polish in it.

    They look like barnyard mixes and all are Roosters.

    #1 is a roo and looks like he is mixed with polish or something else with a crest
    #2 is a roo and looks like a black wyandotte or wyandotte mix
    #3 is a roo and my guess is Delaware X Silver Laced Wyandotte
    #4 is a roo as well and unsure of the breed, could have some Delaware or Barred Rock in him.

    I agree - all roosters (all have pointy saddle feathers).

    1. Looks like a Speckled sussex crossed with something with head feathers - as others suggested, maybe polish.
    2 - 4 Look like wyandotte crosses - because of the rose combs. 2 may be crossed with Black Australorp, and 3 & 4 may be dominique crosses.

    All are pretty mix breeds roosters , I think the mixes can produce some really pretty birds.
    Looks like you have blue wyandotte x dominique cross.
