    I am new to this, number 2 and 3 look like roos to me. What breed are they, Barred Rocks?

    They are definately barred rocks as for the gender. How old are they? I think 1 is a pullet 2 and 3 may be roos.

    How old are they? #1 pullet and the other two look like cockerels to me, depending on the age.

    I agree with speckledhen.

    The coloring of #2 and #3 is lighter as well which is screaming Roo.
