    I cant say Im sure of the sexes of my birds. Nobody has crowed yet but nobody has laid eggs either. Some act roo'ish but it may just be the pecking order too. Sorry for the bad pics but it is hard to 1.catch a large group of 16-18week chickens, 2.hard to get them to stand still, and 3.get everyone to be nice once caught so I threw out breakfast and took shots from above the best I could

    Im pretty sure on the breeds...
    BLRW (huge girl
    Barred Rock
    2 GLW
    SLW
    SL Cochin
    Delaware
    BLW
    2 EE's
    Partridge Rock
    Welsummer
    Buff Brahma

    Again...sorry for the bad pics but it was the best I could do by myself

    In the second pic, the gold one on the right looks a little suspicious to me. I thought there might be some saddle feathers, but it's blurry. All the rest look henny to me.

    from what i have read the hens slow down and even stop laying in the winter because the days get shorter.

    That is one I question most. That is one of the EE's I believe. I can not find any pointy saddle feathers but really Im not sure. Wouldnt they be crowing by now? Let me see if I can get my son to go catch chickens and I will post pics IF he can get them.

    Looks like all pullets. Even the EE and BLRW that you were questioning.
