    They are all so cute~ to me they look like pullets! If they are roo's they's probably already have some combs and reddening on their faces.

    Have you tried taping the blonde chick's curled toes? She may still be young enough to fix them. As for gender, at the moment they look like girls, but it is too early to tell.

    As for the toes, I'd try again, be hopeful. It can cause problems with walking etc.

    Looks like pullets!
