    i think the first one is the only hen and all the others are roos.
    and you're right, the white one is a bit confusing but i'm leaning towards roo because its comb and wattles are much more developed than the white ones.
    are they a mix cause they have red combs and wattles?

    im not sure, the breeder i bought them off said they were purebred, but after reading the posts in here i would say they could possibly be a mix, but i would not know what they would be crossed with!

    they are mixes. Black looks hen, blue looks roo, how old are they. I guess if close to laying age the white might be a hen?
