    I bought these three at the auction last night, and I'm fairly sure the latter two are hens, but I am wondering the gender on the first and the breeds of all of them. Thanks.

    No need to wonder - your first bird is 100% roo - looks to be a GLW

    Not sure where the rest of my post went - it ate the second sentence which was "The other two look like EE pullets"

    Yeah ive got a silkie buff roo and an OEGB roo that get along well, adding another one, especially larger one, to the mix wouldn't end well I don't think.
