    Hi there,

    I purchased 3 pullets from a breeder. Who assured me they were all hens.

    They are now about 4 months old and I am starting to get suspicious that a couple are cockerels.

    Either that, or they are differing ages.

    Here is a picture of them:

    I'm leaning towards cockerel, could you get a better picture of the whole body? (including tail?)
