    Can you experts tell me these are hens or roosters? I hatched these from eggs.
    The leghorn is 18 wks old.
    The 2 BO's are 14 wks old.

    The leghorn's comb seems to double in size and much redder in the past month. S/he has been making some sort of chicken sounds constantly when I am out there next to the coop, is that the sign of ready to lay? No swatting. Legs always been yellow without changes.

    This is the first time I post pictures, so if the pics dont come through, sorry. Thank you so much.
