    Hi everyone!

    I have four cross-breeds that I can't figure the gender out on (or what they're likely descended from). The top and bottom pictures show the three youngest and the middle picture shows one that was born a month or two earlier who I thought was a pullet, but whose tail makes me worry its a male. As for the younger three, I'm pretty sure the one on the top right is a hen-to-be, but am having trouble with the other two.

    I see pointy saddle feathers on your black one. I think it's pretty safe to say that that one is a boy. In the top picture, I think you're correct on the bird to the right - looks very girly. The coloration reminds me of a Welsummer or EE. Keep an eye on the one next to her. It could go either way. Same with the last picture.

    How old are the three younger ones?

    The younger three are three-four months old I believe. Thanks for the info on the gender---it was what I was starting to think (3 males, 1 female) but was hoping I was wrong. :( Now I have to figure out whether to keep all three or not.
