    Actually 3 might be pullet. The tail feathers are long but not too long. Although the comb is really big

    They all look like cockerels to me, I'm seeing a lot of saddle feathers and hackle feathers, not to mention the sickle feathers already coming in. They look like Australorps to me, a little scrawny though, how old are they?
