    Hey folks I just bought myself 3 more chickens 1 is a rooster for sure! The other two were supposed to be pullets.... However my rooster and the "hens" stand in their fighting position and sometimes start a little 10 secs fight. This is making me think I have 3 roosters. Or maybe they are just fighting for pecking order?? Below I have posted pics of the chickens it may be of help! I just need to know so I can keep a eye on the newbies so they don't kill each other!
    Thanks guy
    I was told this one was a hen?
    And I was told this one was also a hen?
    And of course this one is a rooster :)

    Your hens are still hens. I don't see any signs of a rooster in them. They are probably just working out the pecking order, or may just want to fight. Some of my hens will fight with my roosters no matter what; they just don't like them!
