I have been on a few hatchery websites and have seen pictures of what were labeled hens but they had waddles and good sized combs.
I am confused now as to what I have! Tell me what these are please. They are all about 8 weeks old. Sex & breed if you can....thanks!

I think 1 and 2 are pullets, and 3 is for sure a roo! As for breed, I think 1 is a White Leghorn pullet, 2 is a Red Sex-Link pullet, and 3 (the roo) is a New hampshire Red. Does he crow ever?

I think #1 could be a White Rock pullet because of the red ears, #2 is either a New Hampshire Red or Red Sex-Link pullet, and #3 is hmmm... probably a NH Red roo.

If they are only 8 weeks old they are most definitely all boys. I've had some roosters wait until 6+ months to crow.... give it time.

We got them all from a farmers market. I thought they may all be boys.
