    Beautiful birds, blue laced red wyandottes are my all time favorite chickens! It does look like you have many cockerels, but I do see some pullets. Good luck!

    I am so confused.. I see all sorts of pictures and I can't tell which pictures are of the same flock of birds and which aren't.... Lol. All I know is that I see at least 5 or 7 cocks.

    I agree, all sorts of bodies intertwined - one bird per photo would help a great deal. Also their age. I do see several cockerels

    Sorry about pics.... all pics of white birds are all the same flock.... trying to get more individual pics up.... I thought at least 5 ? were males of 8 cochins.... disappointing.... and 3 ? of 5 wyandottes are males.... ? I had the same thing happen with other hatch... 6 males and 2 females.... I have someone who wants the hens....wish I could say for sure this is a hen....
