    At that age, males will usually have larger and redder combs and wattles. If you will post some profile pics where we can see their combs well, we can probably sex them for you.

    I was able to put pics of them on my profile but I'm not sure how to add them to my post if anyone can have a look at my profile of the pics of the chickens and tell me what they think that would be great thank you

    Africa - near the equator
    Id say the one on the right is certainly a male, and the other two are girls - I'm far from an expert though.

    I agree but keep an eye on the girls, if they start getting bigger and redder combs soon - all bets are off

    You have added the photos while in your account section as avatar photos. What you need to do is add them here while you are typing your message. When you have your text screen open there will be a few Buttons above it. B, a chain link, mountain (that's the one you want) and the @ symbol.

    Just click the little mountain button and it will give you prompts to select the photos from your mobile device. Oh and I sometimes have trouble with them not uploading if I'm using my phones data but it works fine if I. Hooked up to our wifi connection so if they don't upload try using wifi.

    Oh and there may be a minimum post limit to be able to add photos so if you are new that could also be causing problems. Go say hi to a few other newbies and try again.

    Im no little chick sexing guru lol but as one has a larger comb than the others it could be a rooster. Good luck!
