    We rescued these guys from being sent to Henny Penny, and have had them for about 2-3 months now. There's 3 white ones and 3 brown/red ones, and we're in NSW, Australia, if that makes a difference. Here's a pic of them all in their hutch.

    Here's a closer up picture of one of our white ones:

    Another shot of them all, which shows our biggest white one towards the back:

    And a bonus shot of their first outing from the hutch/coop when they decided to go up a tree:

    Whites are boys and browns are girls (i think). I think they are the common Ginger ones and their boys are white.

    Having looked at your pictures and googling them, I think you might be right. We didn't even want one rooster, let alone three!

    You will have to rehome a couple or get more hens. All 3 could live happily together with more girls but if there is 3 roosters to 3 hens it wont go down well for the hens or the cockerels!

    I agree the white ones are boys and the reds are girls. They look like Red Sexlinks.

    Yep, whatever brand name your red sex links get sold as in NSW. White birds are males, red birds are females.
