    I have four, but have only been able to get decent photos of a couple of them. First two are Grace, who is much bigger than the other three:

    And one of Olive:

    Also, are there any particular indicators in these two that I can compare to the others? Olive, Owl, and Cleo all seem pretty similar to me, but Owl's always running around, and Cleo keeps her distance, so it's hard to get a good look at them.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback! I thought they might be pullets, but Grace seemed to get so big so fast compared to the others, and my husband thought he saw one of them (but he wasn't sure which) "herding" the others, that I was starting to have doubts.
