Breed and gender confirmation please! - Page 3

Thank you all for your comments! And yes, they came from a hardware store. These three birds were gifts to our kiddos as a Easter present from my parents. They didn't give us a heads up... LOL so we're kinda winging it. Any advice would be appreciated!

Well, there's no question that it's a Buff Orpington, Barred Rock, and whatever #3 is, it almost looks roo-ish with those triangular feathers.  It might be a sexlink.

That buff might be roo too, but this is one of mine from about the same age that yours seems to be.  Now she's just a freeloading hen. 





You might be able to tell by either round or a pointed feathers on the back of the neck and right above the tail.  It's hard to tell from the pictures. 











 

 

Barred rocks are easier because girls have about 50% black/50% white
< Cookie

Boys have way more white, even when they just barely start feathering out.
70%/30% bars like Cream.






























As for #3:

Yours doesn't look like my black sexlink, but it isn't a breed, so there isn't a breed standard.  There's a few birds that look similar in this thread.

If you got them from a hardware store I'm almost 100% sure you have a black sex-link.
