    I would say the closest silver one is a hen. Next big red one is a rooster. Light orange one is a hen. The others I am not sure. It would be a lot easier if you had individual pictures of them.

    Individual body and head shots would make this easier but...I am seeing mostly pullets among the EE's. There are two that are not EE's - they could be RIR's. Of those, I'd say one is definitely a cockerel and the other possibly (but again, a better shot of their whole body would make it easier to make an educated guess). There is also one that looks more like a BO than an EE but as I can only see a little of her head and can't make out her comb, I can't say for sure.

    You're not going to get very accurate answers without individual photos of each chicken (or maybe 2-3 per photo) and photos that show the combs too.

    The EE in the front left of the photo is a pullet. The EE to the right of the RIR? looks like a roo (based on coloring), but pics of the comb would help. The red chicken with the huge comb is a cockerel. I can't tell on the others without close-ups of their combs and pics of their bodys (feather coloring makes a difference).

    all facing to the left except the one in the back corner are roos (4). All the ones facing to the right except the red one with the big comb on the right are pullets. that's 5 roos, 6 pullets, and one we can only see the beak of (I lean toward male on that one).

    oh yeah, i could be wrong.
