    What breed and age?
    I think I see one cockerel. Possibility of a second.

    I can't see well from my phone, but ay that age they look like pullets to me despite the combs, looking at the feathers. Just some are close to laying. I could be wrong, though.

    X2 to those assessments.
    I do think you have one cockerel and most of the pullets are at POL. The one with the pale comb may be a month away.


    Do you see breeding going on?

    Thanks guys. When they were smaller id thought two roos and 3 pullets. I base that on zero experience however.
