    I got 3 chickens from a friend who got fertilized eggs to hatch from a local farm.
    I think they are all boys but not really sure becouse their combs are gray. They are all 4 weeks old. Any ideas on gender or breed?

    A better photo of the two brown chicks is needed. In natural lighting, preferably. The white chick definitely has too much comb for a pullet. They look like Silkie mixes.

    From the fifth photo the two Brown ones look like pullets and like Junebuggena says the white one it looking more like a rooster

    Black feathers on the chest, and deep red on the shoulder/wing can mean only one thing. Those are cockerels.
