    First one does not look like a male.


    1. Buff Orpington (female)
    2. Production Red (Rhode Island Red male)
    3. Partridge Plymouth Rock (male)

    the edge of insanity
    At first I thought that number one was a pullet, but nope. Looking at those feathers... all roos.

    Their feathers are wet...please remember to keep that in mind on the first one.

    I'd let her dry off and then take another photo.

    Quote:wouldnt be surprised if its hard to re-home, in my area i cannot GIVE roosters away free as sooo many people try, so re-homeing isnt really an option (i always try), but i generally end up culling extra boys as well.

    first could be a hen, need better photo, others all look male
