First one might be a girl the rest are roos. Pullets should have round head feathers ( head should have the shape of a baseball) Roos will have  V shaped head feathers.

It's so hard to tell how their crest feathers are shaped b/c when they got them wet they stayed shaped funny sad  I'm ok with 2 roo's and a pullet.....really I want one of each...if all 3 are roo's I guess that's ok too I'd just keep one....but I'd like for one to be a pullet!

I was looking through your pictures with my 2-year old daughter looking on, she just about bugged out over those funky chicken hair-styles. They are so cute! They are all lovely looking chickies smile
