    Just a guess, but 1 & 3 look like Roos to me.

    Thanks, kind of what I'm thinking also, judging by combs, I see no streamers?? Not a happy camper and #2 has a single comb.

    4 looks like a pullet. I wanna say 5 is one too. Any closer just standing side pics of 1?
    2 and 3, in my opinion, look like they could go either way.

    Sooooo, I say get some more pics.
    Of all of them together (for a size comparison), side pics of each so we can see the neck/head, and a frontal face picture of each.

    looks like a hen to me, the comb is very small and the crest is very round.

    Hopefully in response my my little one! I hope so. They are much smaller than their brother and same size as sister (although 1 week behind due to staggered hatch) but sister has a much rounder crest... Fingers crossed I get to keep them all! Xxx

    I went back and looked at your pics but hard to tell with you holding them.
