    I'll be in the barn!
    How old are they? They're looking a little young to sex accurately, but I don't see anything shouting cockerel. Can I see a close-up of the one you think is a rooster?

    [​IMG][/IMG]Roo. He is much larger than the other two. Stands taller and has larger feet. I'm guessing they are 3-4weeks old

    The legs look huge, making me think roo, but that comb... It's not reddish yet. I'm saying possible rooster, watch him for a few weeks, post a new picture so we can confirm once it's older, because obviously I don't want to say hen, and it be a rooster, or rooster and be a hen :lau
