    Looks like you have 2 roosters and a pullet.

    I'd say 1 is a cockerel and 2-3 are pullets :)

    #3 looks like the only pullet to me.

    #3 is probably a pullet, and #2 might be a pullet, too.

    I've always thought #1 was a cockerel and #3 was a puller but I am just very puzzled on #2. Looks to me like a boy. Bigger than #3 but not bigger than #1.
