    Our daughters class hatched a bunch of eggs as a class project last year. We took three of them. The gray is willow, the back one is brownie and the redish/brown I'd pancake. ( kids school named them). Lol they haven't started laying yet, they are about 5 months old so not sure if all boys (they don't fight) or all girls. Pls help.

    The pictures are not very clear, but I would say they are girls.

    All of them look like pullets.

    I'll try to get some clearer ones later today. But that would explain why willow isn't crowing. We were told before that the gray one was a boy.

    It's hard to tell from the picture, but the feathers of the gray one's crest look distinctly round to me. =pullet

    Thank you to everyone who has answered. It kinda explains a lot so far. Didn't get any other pics of them today but hopefully tomorrow. Now just need them to start laying. Lol
