    Rooster or Hens?

    I have three beautiful 20 week old silverlaced Wyandotte's. I have found a lot of good advice on here about saddle feathers, coloration, combs and battles but I still I have no idea. They all look the same to me at this age. Can you guys please help!? Not laying yet, so far no one has crowed. Thanks for your help!
    Photo 1: Coloration and saddle feathers?
    Photo 2: Martha, very vocal when I approach but has not "crowed" its more like awwwkkkkkkkk. Shes large and in charge. Her comb and wattle are most pronounced
    Photo 3 and 4 : Milly and Mabel, these two have similar marking/feathers/behavior
    Photo 5: All three lots of backside "fluff"
    What do you guys think? All hens that are about to start laying???

    This is my 17 week old silver laced wyandotte rooster next to the pullet. (Rooster on the right) Noticed the difference between him and the ladies around 10-12 weeks because his size was larger and his comb/wattle were much bigger and redder than his hen counterparts.
