    We have three chickens. Can anyone tell me they are hens or roosters? They are about 9-10 weeks now. Hope they are hens, otherwise we couldn't have them in the place we live. Thanks.

    It looks like you have two red sex link cockerels, and the black one is a cockerel as well :(

    Yep, all boys. You could advertise on CL and ask at your local feed store if they know of anyone who'd want them. They may have a bulletin board where you could post a note, too.

    Yeah, all boys.

    I had success re-homing one of my roos on Craigslist.

    Yes definitely all boys sorry. Next time try buying sexed pullets instead of straight run.
