    Can anyone tell me how many of these are roosters? Or maybe, tell me which ones are not? And can anyone tell me what kind of birds these are? I got them from a local guy who got them as eggs. I have a total of 16 birds and I think several are roosters.

    Just a guess:

    Pics 1-4 Roosters
    Pic 5 Rooster and can't see the other one good enough to tell
    Pic 6 Rooster
    Pic 7 Need a better picture
    Pic 8 Rooster
    Pic 9 Rooster
    Pic 10 Possibly 2 hens and a Rooster, really need a better picture.

    Side pictures would be great so that we can see the bird better to see if we can see saddle and hackle feathers.
