    I have 3 Beautiful Chickens, and they are confusing me to what breed and as to whether they are Roo's or Hens.
    any help Identifying them is greatly appreciated.

    There was also 2 Turikins in the auction box, so I am not sure if they were all the same brood or not.
    Thanks in Advance.

    What I thinkis so cool about all 3 is the long neck hackles, its like watching silk move.
    I forgot to add , these are very large birds, they are only 19 weeks old and huge.

    Sex link Do have red actually , I have 2 black sex link with red splashes through their feathers.
    kinda makes them look rusted in spots.
    2 Of the boys have started crowing, one is still trying to get it right.
    there is something disturbingabout their voices, its a deep crow with a break to girly high pitch lol.
    first time I heard it I said who the heck was that :LOL
    Still waiting on the second turkin to decide to throw its voice or an egg.
    My other turkin proudly showed he was a He at an early age. this second one is quiet.

    Thank you everyone for you gender help and identification of these beautiful birds.
