    Molly is a rooster (EE?)..there are clear sickle feathers in the tail, and saddle feathers, and that is a typical blotchier pattern for an EE roo.

    I think Maggie is an EE rooster as well as I see clear spiky saddle feathers in photo #2 of that bird, and darker wing bows...so I say roo on him as well.

    Both Maggie and Molly also have larger combs for EE's. (My 20 week old girls are just now getting a bit bigger than their baby combs).

    I'm not familiar with Polish...so I'm not sure...and that looks to be a polish mix??? I'm thinking maybe pullet as I can't see spiky saddle feathers, but that is more cascade at the saddle than cushion...but again I'm not sure of Polish. I'll step aside to let someone else guess on Agnes.

    But I'm pretty confident on the first two...both roo's.

    Molly and Maggie are for sure roosters. I think Agnes is as well, but a head shot and/or a closeup photo of the side of the chicken would sure help. It's really hard to tell from the photo provided.

    That's what I was afraid of. Not looking good for any pretty colored eggs.
