    I'm pretty sure that the Polish is a cockeral. And I think the other two are pullets, please let me know what you think.

    And my Polish. Am I right? Is he a cockeral? And what would his color be called? Buff Laced?

    Your guess look correct to me [​IMG] The Silkie looks like a hen and the other buff looks like a Plymouth Rock.

    I'll say pullet on the silkie, although I don't know much about them.
    NHR pullet
    I think the polish is a dude.

    Thanks everyone! Now the only one I'm questioning is the buff.

    I think she IS a buff rock. I have some buff orp pullets that are quite dark like that. NHR are more of a rust color.

    I'm kind of confused. Buff rocks and Buff orps are different. Orps have white/greyish legs and buff rocks have yellow, like the pullet above. However, that pullet is too dark IMO. I would say it is something closer to a red star or a New hampshire red, like another post has said.
    You can see one of my buff rocks in this pic. They are a buff color. Not red or "rusty" like yours. Sorry I don't have a better pic.
