    I need help with these 3 birds. I think they are roo's but would be greatful if more experienced eyes looked them over.Tthey were hatched 6/6/11. Their dad is a blue cochin the moms could be anything.

    Really? Well that would be awesome as that was what I was hoping for when I kept them but they all 3 have spur buds and have been sparring off and on with each other and we have heard 1 strangled kind of squeaking crow but it was a one time thing.

    Like everyone else already said all pullets/girls.

    Quote:That sparring may be due to establishing the pecking order.

    Agree. Hens, just like roosters, tend to get in sparring matches (even if you are not looking) to set dominance, and maybe other reasons. Hens can grow spurs.

    Hens can crow even though it is not particularly common or a normal crow.

    Well thanks everybody. I appreciate the help and the assurances the little buggers are pullets. I thought they were when I originally kept them after I hatched them out but then they were so different from my other pullets I started having doubts. My buff orps and the jersey giant I have were all easy to spot but these birds had me confused.
