Light sussex, hen or cockerel?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter

I purchased 3 pullets from a breeder. Who assured me they were all hens.

 

They are now about 4 months old and I am starting to get suspicious that a couple are cockerels.

 

Either that, or they are differing ages.

 

Here is a picture of them:

I'm leaning towards cockerel, could you get a better picture of the whole body? (including tail?)
