    These guys are about 8 weeks old and the person I got them from said they were a cross between Barred rock and ameraucana with a couple of them that are pure breed ameraucana. choose one to tell me about, choose all I just need to figure this out because I really don't need 5 roosters in my little coop.

    The black one on the very bottom looks like a cockerel, as well as the one 3 up from the bottom, and the 5th one up. Other than that, they all look like normal young pullets, though to me they look a little older than 2 months.
    Maybe 3? At about 4 months, if they are cockerels, they should start showing their spurs. They do look like an interesting cross. Hope they work out for you and aren't all roos!

    The bottom bird and the (almost like) columbian buff looking bird, to me, look like roosters. Is the 1st pic this same bird? The 1st pic orange/buff EE is deff a rooster. You can see the tail feathers
