    It looks like you have a Barred Rock rooster, a Buff Orpington (pullet, I think), and an Easter Egger pullet.

    I agree the Barred Rock is a roo - all that comb and wattle developement, along with the curvature of the sickle feathers are classic roo signs.

    The second is a pullet - looks like a Red Sex Link

    The third is an Easter Egger, I'm guessing pullet. Not an Ameraucana.

    Most hatcheries have a 90% success rate with sexing. Send the pic to the hatchery and let them make it right for you.
