    The first pic is of Peaches and Tangerine who I think are girls.

    The second pic is Mandarin that I think is a boy.

    Do you agree or am I wrong. If I am right I am going to seperate the three before Kung pao takes over the two girls and beats up Mandarin.

    Thanks, Meg

    Yeah, looks like you have 2 hens and the last 1 looks like a rooster. I pic of the tail would probably help though.

    Here is a pic of Mandarin with his tail and Tangerines head in the back ground for comparison. I have had them for around a month and a half and they just finished getting rid of all their baby feathers. Mandarin is a few weeks older than the other two though cause he was bigger than them when I got them. He makes no noise or attempts at crowing and he hangs out with the hens near the barn while my two other rooster are out exploring every nook and cranny of the one acre yard they are in. The other two boys get up trees and on the barn roof, they chase the pig, they attack my barn kittens, but Mandarin just quietly stays with the girls.

    Mandarin is no doubt a rooster, but he sounds like a keeper! [​IMG] Not like those other bad roosters.

    Edited to say oops! I was looking at the wrong tail! Hmm- still think it's a rooster though.
