    I bought 5 chickens s month ago that were supposed to already be laying, however they were younger than I was told. I know I have 1 hen and 2 roosters but not sure on the last two any opinions of gender are appreciated.

    The forum is very helpful, but we will need pictures of each bird for the best results.

    agreed

    I think you need more posts thought before you can post a picture.

    My pictures are being reviewed by a moderator before posting but I'm trying to get some up. I think they are about 5 months old, one is already laying and the two definitely roosters have their long tail feathers and are mounting my hens.

    The blacks pictured are definitely cockerels. Can you post a picture that shows the splash's back feathering better?
