    The 2 black ones I assume are black Australorp. They look so different but no one is crowing yet. Can anyone tell me if one is a hen or rooster?

    Here is a zoomed in pic. I assume the front one is a boy and the other is a girl. They are 3 months old. We are butchering boys Sunday and I want to make sure I get them all.

    PLEASE post photos at "what breed or gender is this?" for confirmation, BEFORE swinging an ax.
