    I know these pics are not that great but I am hoping all of you, with your abundance of knowledge, can help my friend to know if these are roos or hens and what breed(s) they may be. they are around 18 weeks and one of them is crowing, but she is not sure which one. I would say the first and or the second pic but I am no expert.
    Thank you

    Whole body shots would be better - but, looking at hackle feathering, of the three #1 looks the least likely to be the culprit --- #2 and #3 look likely to both be roos.

    I agree with Ol Gray Mare, but I believe all 3 are males!

    1-2 look almost like dark brahmas, do they have feathered feet?

    Then 1-2 are dark brahmas and I'll look at 3 again! :)

    3 looks like a mixed breed with some dark brahma in him!

    If they are Brahmas then I am 100% sure that all three are roos. Brahmas develop slowly. At 18 weeks many pullets would be starting to develop red combs, but a Brahma pullet takes much longer to develop.
