    Some of these I believe are definitely without doubt roosters.. it's the little grey Ameraucana looking EE that is puzzling.

    Also this supposed Lavender Sussex is another tricky one.. [​IMG]

    All the birds you posted are male. You can see the hackle feathers on the one in the first photo, which is the giveaway for that one. In the group shot, the only one that is potentially not a male is the black bird behind the black crested cockerel. The other three birds you posted are all males.
