    Your guesses look right to me, and Jackie looks like a boy too.

    If Jackie is a boy's name, then I think the others are correct, and you - 2 pullets and the rest are roos.
    As for the coloring, I would have to say there is some sex link going on with all of them. If they were blue or splash they should not have the gold color mixed in there, which it looks like they all do. You will need a more experienced poultry guru to help you get a closer answer.

    I agree. 3 boys and 2 girls. as for the colors I have no clue but only to guess they are crossed or poor coloring genes.
