    These were given to me and as far as I can tell Martha is a barred rock 90% guess its a roo - June might me a leghorn and is 100% roo - Bunny is my assumed EE chick and still uncertain on sex. [​IMG]

    You're spot on with your guesses. And all 3 are 100% cockerels.

    Are you sure all of them are? =( I was hoping to keep at least one or two of them. They all get along so well. Or is that just because they are so young?

    Yes, probably because they're young. They all have huge red combs for their age. The Barred Rock and the Easter Egger also have typical male feathering -- the BR males have lighter barring and EE males have splotchy colors, with dark mahogany patches on their shoulders.
