I was hoping you guys could confirm sex/Species of my birds. I know EE are hybrids but I know they resemble one species more than another. Thanks in advance!

:welcome!

I don't think you have any EEs. The species of all of your birds is gallus gallus domesticus (chicken) but I think you were probably meaning breed.

So in order, the first and second pictures look to be production reds or maybe new hampshire reds, the third picture is maybe a welsummer (a picture in better lighting would help) the fourth is a silver laced wyandotte, the fifth is a RIR/production red, and the sixth is again a silver laced wyandotte.

As for gender, it's hard to say without knowing the age of the birds.

How old is that first bird? I guess age on all of them would be good, but that's the only one that's possibly a cockerel.

I see production Reds (probably, standing pics in good light would help, but regardless, they're something Red), probably a brown Leghorn (looks like white earlobes, but they're pretty small). Could be a Welsummer. Standing pic would help to see body shape. Or, wait until she lays--white eggs are Leghorn, terra cotta brown is Wellie. Then a silver laced Wyandotte, another production Red, and another Wyandotte.

No Easter eggers there. All brown eggers, except possibly the Leghorn.

On the one hand my wife is going to be crushed, she wanted multi colored eggs. The birds are all about 4 months old. I have been worried that 3 of them might be roos

How much can you narrow down age on them?

Can we get better pics of that first bird especially. If they're younger than 4 months, you may indeed have a few cockerels.

I agree--except there's no way that's a Welsummer.

I bought them from orchelins on April 16 as chicks. I'll add more pictures of the first bird when I get home.
