I have a trio at least one is laying. How do you tell the males from females?
You could try and vent sex them. (I seen how to do it in books and some websites). I think that would be the only way unless you break them all up into separate pens and see for certain just who is and isn't laying the eggs. I got lucky and have a pair. The only way I knew for certain was when they started breeding and she started laying. The gander is larger though, and has a dewlap that she doesn't have. His neck is much thicker and he just looks altogether more masculine.
Have you seen any mating activity? Hopefully you have a trio. I've heard once you determine who is who, (or should I say, what), you should band them so that you can tell at a glance in the future and not have to go through all the trying to determine all over again.
