    Your crele (barred) birds are roosters, IMO. I see very pointy saddle feathers! If it were not for those saddles, they look more like hens...sort of a confusing body-type.

    I have several more that are confusing me, I was really hoping that they were hens of course but they all seem to have the pointy saddle feathers. They aren't trying to breed anything, are very docile and don't crow.

    Agreed. Roo. That one has a rooster's body type in addition to the pointy hackle and saddle feathers.
