    I have 3 -7wk old black Ameraucanas
    1 I know is a pullet.
    The other two have bright red combs and have 3 rows.
    Is there any way possible that they can be hens?
    I am new to chickens and I don't see any difference in their feathering.

    At what point or age will they start fighting over the one hen?

    I just don't know if I should wait a few more weeks, or find new homes immediately.

    This is totally how chicken math starts! It's exactly how I ended up with 7 chickens when the original plan was 4.
