    I am not sure on other breeds other than the Isa Browns, but I am under the assumption that the red combs mean roosters, BUT I think it comes back to breed :)
    I am sure someone will correct me, as they have more experience than I do with other breeds :)

    My guess would be they are all a while off still laying. Your Australorp should lay anywhere from about 18-20 weeks. The isa and leghorn a little earlier.
