    I hatched these chicks 3 months ago, December 30th. No one has crowed yet. They were raised by a broody.

    Kylo is the only obvious cockerel, but it would help to have full body profile pictures.

    I think they're all cockerels except for cinnamon.

    Kylo is the only definite cockerel I see.

    I believe that Kylo is the only cockerel I see... for now. They are already 3 months, so I believe that the others would be a little more developed - Longer/iridescent tail feathers, large, red combs, etc. All cute chickens though!

    I'm thinking Kylo is the only Boy....it's just strange that they all have such red combs, like pullets at point of lay. Are you positive of age?

    My pullets all had red combs months before they began laying. 3 months seems about right to me.

    100% positive. They hatched under my broody all between the 29th and 30th December.
