    I have 3 birds like this - 2 I know are roo's and I think one is a hen. I am posting a roo and the hen (?) picture. What breed are they?
    This is the one crowing.

    This one is not crowing - hen??? Because no tail feathers???

    Then I have three of these - just alike. I'd to know the breed and gender. I'm thinking roo because of the pointy tail feathers, right???

    The First 2 are boys, and probably mixes, the 3rd is a hen, I think production red.

    First two are roosters.

    Next 3 look like hens - either laying hens or pullets close to laying age or young cockerels (their wattles are pretty big). How old are they?

    The last 3 look like they have white earlobes (signaling a white egg layer), so I don't think they are production red or RIRs

    Pic #2 is a cool looking dude. I think he's very handsome, even without any tail feathers.
