    We bought eggs and hatched them. This is our first time raising chickens from birth so I am not sure if they are hens or roosters. I will need to get rid of them before they start crowing, but want to keep them if they are hens. I appreciate any help so much!!

    #2 looks like a rooster for sure. Others I'm not sure.

    They all look like roosters to me. #3 has classic patchy rooster coloring, #2 shows pointed saddle/hackle feathers already, and #1 has a rather large comb for a pullet of this age.

    Thanks so much for the answers! I guess I will have to find them new homes.
