Hi all. I'm a first time chicken farmer in Vermont. The birds you see here are from this spring, they've been laying about 3 weeks. I'm still not entirely sure how many roosters I have, and I'm not even too clear on the breeds. Help?

I think I may have one black rooster. From when they were little chicks he would stand on the little (9") tall water feeder overlooking the rest, and still seems to run the show, although I've seen one of the 4 littler brown/black ones peck him off the roost when he came over.
