    I see 2 roosters, the chick n in the corner in pic 2, and the chick on the right in the last pic. Are these mixed breeds? Your black chick with a gold neck looks like a black sexlink, but the other look like crossbreeds, one of your roos has a rose or walnut comb.

    They are all straight runs so a mix of could be anything. I was thinking maybe two rossters also by the combs but by the tail feathers I only see maybe three hens. There is 8 in this cage right know so I need to try to get some better pics tomorrow.

    You cant really go by the tails at this age. At 3-4 months, the roosters will start growing in thier pointed feathers in their hackle(neck) and saddle(back). If you can try and take a picture with a side view and a comb shot. Roosters also usually feather in slower than hens.
