    Hi all. Anyone have any thoughts on the gender of these beauties? All about 4 months old.

    Spangled Russian Orloff:

    Orloff is certainly a cockerel.

    Brahma looks like a pullet.

    I have no clue on the silkie.

    Orloff is male
    I don't do silkies as a rule, but I'm getting roo vibes here
    Brahma is female--she's gorgeous!

    Your Orloff and Silkie look like cockerels to me. However, your Brahma is a pullet.

    And here are the two suspect roos having what is surely a rooster standoff? They do this for a while, then fly at each other, then one nips the other's tail, then they just go back to coexisting happily.
