    Thank you for responding :) What makes you think 3 roos? I'm new to this so I'm just guessing based on my research... In person 2 of the 3 only appear to have 1 single comb, and 1 has an obvious 3 row comb. Besides that what else is there to look for? Also in my previous thread about this some ppl were saying they don't even really look ;like EE, so would that change the sex indicators too?
    TIA!!! :)

    Their combs are way big for 14 weeks, which is signs of roosters, and they are growing in pointy saddle feathers, which is also rooster, and it looks like some glossy red patches on the wings of some, which is also rooster.
