    Sorry. If they all have combs like the one in the second picture, they are roos.

    Thats not always the case.

    What breed of chicken are they? That may help. The first picture it kinda looks like the combs are a little lighter in color which could indicate Hens.

    Could you take a picture of all of them.

    Quote:I agree, from what I see in the first picture. But better pictures would help.

    I thought they were serama's....
    Then those 2 with the lighter combs are pullets. The one in the second picture is a cockeral.

    Seems like you have a trio.

    if they are serama, they are likely all roos, seramas get their combs early, and you will see an obvios difference between pullet and cockerel at that age
