    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! You might like to post their picture in the What Breed/Gender forum for help with figuring out what you have. https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this They are still young to say for sure, and not sure how many chicks there are more than one pic of, but would vote am seeing two roos in pic 1, probable roo in 3, roo in 4, roo closest and maybe roo in back in 5, the two you can see heads on roo on right in 6, two on the right roos in 7

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I agree with Kelsie2290 about posting on What Breed or Gender Is This? They are very young to be trying to sex. The only two I have any confidence (and here it's far from certain) in saying that they are roosters is the right chick in picture 1 and the front chick in picture 5. The combs seem more developed in those two than in the rest. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
