We were told that they are all females and are the same age (July 6, 2020):
- Black Australorp
- Barred Rock
- Red Star
Observations?

They look like the breeds you listed. The red sex link is a female because they can be auto sexed at hatching, but I would wait for the other two.

One way to tell what sex they are is to hold them by their feet. The female will curl her body and try to fight, but the male will just hang there.

That actually is not an accurate way of telling them apart. Comb and wattle development at a young age and feathering at an older age are the accurate way if telling them apart. As well as attitude and how they hold themselves. And leg size. As well as other indicators.
