    I know the dark footed one is a hen and I'm pretty sure that the dark headed one is a roo--but I'm not sure of the mostly red one. Anyone? Thanks. :)[​IMG]

    I agree, the one with dark legs is a pullet, the other two are definitely roosters.

    You all were right--the little dark legged one is my girl Charlie who is laying a light brown egg each day and trying to go broody everytime! The other two have been placed into homes with hens of their own. :)
    I also want to add that of the 4 keets my d'uccle hen hatched out that each and every one is a buckwheater!!!
