  2. Hard to say from the photos, but the black one with the red comb is a boy

    the one with the biggest tail? I'll post more in a second. What do you think about the other two?

    I am not an expert, but those combs look a little red to me. I am not 100% and if they were me, I certainly would keep hope for girlies, and not get rid of them. At that age, they should start crowing (it'll be pretty bad though[​IMG]) if they are boys.

    (Don't take this as an answer, it's just my two cents)

    The one i think is a hen is pretty quite but the other two are chirping loudly. Dose that mean anything?
