    In the first picture, the five birds in the foreground are pullets. I am unsure of the reddish bird in the back. Can you post a picture of this bird?

    x2. I'd guess that bird in the back to be a cockerel based on what I can see of it.

    I feel the same way - not 100 %, but I think I can make out male hackle and saddle feathers when I enlarge the picture.

    Look at how the tail feathers are curving on the red one! Sorry, that’s a cockerel.

    I think the rest are pullets.

    I agree with the one in the back being a rooster, but I also think that the very front bird is also a rooster. I think that is the same bird in the picture of a single bird. To me, I think he is a rooster. I could be wrong, not always is it easy to tell in pictures. I think 3 hens and 2 roo's

    They all look like pullets to me.

    ^ Yep, I agree. That last picture of the red bird looks very girly (if you're sure thats the same red bird, that is :) ). If you have any cockerels, they'll likely start crowing very soon.
