    I can't see the comb well on the first bird, but if it's a rose comb he's a Colombian Wyandotte cockerel.

    Second bird is an Easter egger pullet

    third bird, can't see leg color well but if they're white/pink she's a buff Orpington.

    I think they are all mixed breeds

    First is a rooster, no doubt.

    Second is an Easter Egger...possibly from Araucana blood as it looks to have some ear tufting

    Third looks like a mixed breed possibly with some Buff Orpington in it.

    It may be the photo blur, but I would check your birds for scaly leg mites, especially the buff colored bird.

    Posted these peeps many times checking gender. Pearl was determined pullet. Roughly 5-6 months now.

    How are let mites detected? How to treat?

    Is Pearl laying eggs? She has saddle feathers and sickle curl tail feathers of a rooster.

    I'll post a photo and instruction article for scaly leg mites below. (Note, I personally wouldn't use the gasoline method. I've simply applied vaseline thickly for a number of weeks for success with moderate cases.)

    Only mama is laying. We were given mama and 9 chicks. I've posted several times and only one chick was deemed cockerel - Harvey. I agree that Pearl has the same feathers as Harvey but Pearl doesn't have a comb nor does Pearl crow.

    Harvey mounts mama but Pearl does not. We don't want chicks, only eggs. We agreed to keep him as long as Harvey is 'nice'. Do I need to worry about Pearl too?

    Would you please post a photo of Pearl head on, she does have a bit of red(comb?) on top of beak - would like to see full extent. Also in two photos the side view of Buff Orp? shows the head looking odd like it was shaved down or maybe a mixed buff orp.

    Mary Jane's (3rd) legs are feathery. Check on her leg color and reply.
