    I am thinking Boy, Girl, Girl....they look much smaller in the pictures for some reason however they are bantams so they are a little small. My Silver Laced Cochin Bantam Hen is only about 4lbs and is 9 months old!

    Chicks #2 and #3 look like possible pullets, but Chick #1 is a cockerel.

    Well without the even looking at chick #1 his attitude and posture are pretty clear he is a cockerel. #2 &3 both act female but I know that at this age that means little. Hopefully it is Boy Girl Girl because I would really like to see some Lavender/ Silver Lace Crosses!!!!

    I'm thinking cockerel, cockerel, pullet. However, it is a little young to tell for sure.
