    Those are pretty chickens! [​IMG]

    They all have pretty bright combs for hens, but the second and third chickens look like they could be hens. The first could be a rooster, but I'm not sure.

    Best of luck with them!

    Full body pictures would help, but I'm guessing all pullets.

    alright, tomorrow, bright and early, I'll take some Pic's. it'll be hard to make them stay still, BUT I'll make it work. does leg stance play a role in gender determination??
    I know comb and wattles play a HUGE role in the diff. but what makes them appear female/male??? When do they start crowing??? oh, by the way I put Vit., electrolytes, Probiotics, amino acids, minerals, and agrimycin in their water.

    Thanks!

    How a chicken stands can certainly help in determining male from female, though different breeds work in different ways. In most breeds, the male stands more upright than the female does, at least as he reaches maturity.
