    Well they're all roosters as far as I can tell. #3 Looks like a Gold sexlink.

    most are roosters. Youve got some sex links and bunch of mixes really. lThe ittle blonde guy with the black wants to be a japanese but I think hes a mix too.
    so here
    1. rooster : red sex link
    2. pullet: buff brahma
    3. rooster: red sex link
    4. pullet: mix looks like a rhode island red
    5. Rooster: japanese mix and the one on the left looks a pullet but then again could be a roo: not sure what it is
    6. not sure on those they look like pullets and possibly splash leghorns?

    Im just guessing on most so I could be wrong.
    which ones are crowing
    or laying eggs?

    Number three is definately crowing. He starts at 5 A.M.
    and crows every 20 or 30 seconds. I have not heard other crows nor seen eggs.

    Number 4 is a partridge something- I wouldn't say a mix. The gold pair are a hen & roo- look like Nankins. Cute!
     
  6. 2 is a Buff Brahma, but I think he's a rooster.

    The first & fourth ones are the only ones that looks female. Well, not absolutely sure on the last photo. The buff roo in the 3rd photo doesn't look quite like a brahma--maybe poor quality?

    The other buffs (5th photo) are both males and not the same breed.

    Does the Rooster in the 3rd picture have a poofy head? It looks like he does in the picture.
    The one in the 2nd picture looks like a buff Brahma girl to me?

    #1 could be a pic of one of my "mystery chicks" from TSC. There are a couple of us from here in VA that got them and have NO CLUE what they really are, either breed OR sex! [​IMG]
