    How old are they? As for breeds you have a Production Red, a Silver Laced Wyandotte, and a Welsummer.

    Production Red and Welsummer are pullets. The Silver Laced Wyandotte I'm not sure 1 way or the other.

    I agree the Silver laced Wyandotte looks like a rooster and the other 2 are hens.

    I am not really good at this, but my Silver Laced Wyndotte is just a bit younger than yours and she is definitely a hen. Yours appears VERY much the same as mine. Only the one brown in the back looked a bit suspicious to me....

    Thanks for the reply and info. I don't know how old they are...I rescued them and a crippled rooster which was raised in a house and small cage. I feel sorry for him as he is very big and has deformed feet. Looks like I will have fine now.
    Thanks

    Kind of a guess but somewhere around 6 weeks maybe a bit older. Their heads appear fully feathered but not the sides of their faces is why I say that.
