    First three are roos. Pics are fuzzy , but with the red patches on the shoulders would say #4 is also.

    Yes, the first three are definitely roosters. Its difficult to tell on the last one, but the color pattern makes me think its a rooster, too.

    From the pictures, I'd say that you probably have four roosters.

    Uh, you bought these are guaranteed / sexed pullets? Usually the best bet to get correctly sexed chicks is directly from a hatchery, and preferably get one of the sex links, hard for them to get them wrong. Second choice is to get older chicks that you can already tell what they are from a local breeder, or if you can find one that is correctly breeding sex links. Farm stores seem to be getting pretty bad about mixing chicks up.

    If those were guaranteed as pullets, you need to contact the seller and have them make it right for you.

    Got them from a Breeder Local - Rochester, WA - off Craig's List
    it's taken us all summer to get them Healthy we started off with 8 and 2 died soon after. we got them 1 st from being too young ( in unheated coop.) 2 nd one unknown causes just woke up one AM and it was dead in coop. then TWO more had to come inside and were treated.

    So going back to that Breeder seems foolish @ best.

    Yeah, sounds like a hatchery or feed store is the way to go for you. Or, don't rule CL out all the way, lots of us on byc use it to sell birds. Just do your research first and never, ever feel sorry for a bird and "rescue" sick birds!
