    We received baby chicks from some friends of ours about 14 weeks ago. We absolutely love the newest members of our family. We know they are, "mutt" birds and are not really interested in breed, because it doesn't really matter. We do however care about cockerels vs pullets. Based on my research I am a bit concerned we ended up with 3 roosters and only two hens!

    Welcome! Could you get pics of each chicken and their comb? It looks like you have Silver laced Wyandottes, Production red, Barred rock and EE?
    So far I think Agnes is a rooster, Edith is a pullet, Margo is a rooster, Lucy I'm not sure about, but I'm guessing pullet and Gruzinkerbell is a pullet.

    You have a Barred Rock or Barred Rock mix (Gruzinkerbell), two Silver Laced Wyandottes (Margo and Edith), a Production Red/New Hampshire (Lucy), and an Easter Egger (Agnes). Agnes, Gruzinkerbell, Lucy, and Margo appear to be roosters. Edith is the only pullet.

    Margo, Agnes, Grukinkerbell, and Lucy are definitely cockerels.
