    I also want to ask about the gender of the gray one. I'm positive the top chicken is a rooster but I had always thought the bottom chicken was a hen...and then he/she started crowing and getting real aggressive. He/she does some sort of side attack every time I'm near. Is it a rooster or an aggressive hen?

    That's a cockerel for sure. Look at the way the saddle feathers fall down the back just as the other birds do. Looks to be an Easter Egger to me but I'm still kinda green to it. Someone will be able to tell what breed for sure, but you have two gorgeous roosters.

    Both of them are definitely roosters.

    Yes they are roosters with out a doubt. My guess is that the blue one is an Easter egger, or EE cross, and the red looks very gamey to me. He may also be some kind of barnyard mix.

    The brown bird looks like a mix, agree he could have some game blood. A profile pic would help.
    grey bird is also a rooster, and you need to either deal with his aggression or cull him. A profile pic would help id breed, but he could be an Ameraucana or an EE.
