#2 is my biggest concern...is it a rooster? and if so, can they live together or will there be constant fighting?

#1 I agree does look like a rooster. I don't know the breed, hopefully someone with more experience can help. He is good-looking!
#2 maybe a cuckoo marans hen. Do you know how old they are? Her comb and wattles are alot smaller than #1 so if they are the same age, most likely #2 is a hen.

Hopefully you'll get more input.

Good luck!

they are all the same age...i think they are around 11-12 weeks old. but i'm not positive. it does have a smaller comb than the other, but it's comb is also larger than the 4 others (those i'm pretty sure are hens)...thanks for the input!
