    These three have me stumped.

    First is "Truffles".

    Partridge Rock? Pullet or Cockerel?

    Budder (Butter, but with a d instead of a b. You have to see her in action to understand).

    Buff Rock or Buff Orpington?


    Russet

    Rhode Island Red? New Hampshire? Red Sex Link?

    Truffles might be a mixed breed.
    With those yellow legs, Budder is a Buff Rock
    Russet is a Production Red.
    None of them look like obvious males yet.

    I agree with the posts above, except that I think Truffles is likely a male. If comb turns pink and waddle gets bigger in the next couple weeks you'll know it is a male (same applies to all of them really).

    He's an Australorp, right? The parts of his feet that aren't grey are yellowish white.
