    I hatched three eggs in June (thought they were bantams) and these are my three adorable little/ big birds. I don't know the breed but they all have hairy legs and one is a lot smaller then the other two.

    The one at the front I always thought was a too bit he is now 17 weeks old and though he would be more too like, his tail feathers grew a lot slower then the other two.

    This little guy I also think is a roo but again thought he would be more developed by 17 weeks he also has a funny hair do and always had!

    The is the one I've always thought is a hen!

    I have lots more photos any help on breed or sex would be fantastic. [​IMG]

    Here you can see all three, I've heard no crowing and I am watching them all the time, the two bigger ones are very tame and the little is a little more weary..
    Thanks for any help

    With feathered feet and no crests and single combs I would guess Marans or mix on the cuckoo and mostly black one, the black one is colored pretty much like a Black Copper Marans and the Cuckoo could be X with a Barred Rock or something, at 17? weeks they both look like girls to me. The little one is adorable, silkie or polish X are the obvious choices, can't see comb type. Picture is tiny and far away, but don't see anything that screams roo, but silkies are hard to sex for me.
