    I rescued these 3 a few weeks ago and they are growing up fast, but i have no idea what they are. it is possible that they are different breeds, but i have no idea. We were initially thinking barred rock because the person with them had barred rock, but they had a bunch of other breeds as well. Im thinking the 3rd one is a rooster because of the larger size and the tail feathers, but if it is a different breed, it could still be a hen. i would appreciate any ideas on gender and breed. thank you guys! i am new to the chicken community and am already in love with them, regardless if what they are.

    #2 looks like a Black Australorp, the other two could be mixes. Could you get a better picture of the comb of the last one?
