    These are my 3 girls, Peggy, Lily and Poppy. They are 14 weeks old and the most friendliest, loving creatures. I adore them.

    Can you post profile shots of your 'girls'? A couple of them have excessive comb development for pullets that age, and it almost looks as if the bird in the picture has pointed saddle feathers.

    I'll have to try and get some more tomorrow. Are you thinking they are older or possibly roosters?

    I have had the same thoughts myself. I can't have males due to my neighbours. I'll be gutted if I have to get rid of them. When do they start crowing?

    Oh 'eck. I've just been reading about those no crow collars. I may have to give them a whirl. Saying that though, won't two males fight over the one female?
