    Hi all! I'm new to this whole chooks game. All help is good help!
    A neighbor gave me some of her "pullets" but I'm not so sure they are all growing up to be ladies. Any thoughts would be appreciated..are these male or female?
    Some info: Dad is a black leghorn. Mom could be either an easter egger or a RIR (these are mutts, but of course I love them anyway!). They are 16 weeks old.

    #1 looks the most cockerel-ish. The others are definitely girls.

    :) my thought too. # 1 is by far the most aggressive in the coop, even attempting to push my ameraucana ladies around, who are much older! Makes sense. Haven't heard any crowing yet.

    I think I see a red cast in the wingbow of the first. I would say it is a late blooming cockerel. The other 2 are pullets.

    I agree...cockerel, pullet, pullet.
