The black barred hen is a lady and she hunkers down as you try to pick her up. These birds are nearly 6 months old. I've heard no crowing from the 3 reddish pullets; anyone have any ideas? I know the pics are not great - they all have yellow legs, small tail feathers, wide body, crests and smallish combs.
which are of mixed breed and hatched from green eggs.

They look like hens - But I cannot see the tail feathers of the chicken in the second picture. (If I could see the tail feathers than that would determine its sex.)

Thank you all! You will be pleased to know that yesterday they all started squatting like mad, so you are all right and they are all hens! So pleased. I will have to sell some on (garden is too small) but at least they won't get eaten, or make a noise.
Phew.
