    Hi, our family is new to owning chickens. A week ago we collected 3 barred Plymouth rocks. We would love everyone's thoughts if we have three girls or if we have any roo's? None of them are really light in colour so we are hoping we have all girls. 20171228_115113.jpg 20171229_145136.jpg 20171229_145311.jpg 20171229_145432.jpg 20171229_145852.jpg

    A is for sure a pullet. They all look like pullets, although I'd watch C just in case.

    I was worried about B being a roo just because she is a little lighter.

    Look to be pullets but, the picture with A shows some wider white bands near your hands. Wider white is a male trait though I don't see it anywhere else on her. It's good to check all their feet as well. Females generally have a back wash over their yellow legs. Males a brighter yellow. Combs look nice & pale - like pullets
