    the older one is a pullet.

    The others are probably too young to be positive, but no one's looking male at this point.

    Thanks for the reply and Well that's good to know I normally keep only purebreds but my copper maran got in to my partridge Silkie pen/run but it was only for a day and then she went broody shortly after and these where the ones she hatched If they turn out to be roosters I'll just let them run about the farm or sell them but if they are all hens I might use them as broody hens the mother goes broody about 3 times a year
