    I thought I had 5 hens just last week, but finally they are showing signs of being roosters. Non have combs or waddles. So of course there are 3 of them. Figures. I can't have 3 hens!!!
    I like roo 1 best, but I think it is because he is farthest along although they are all June 16th hatch. The number 2 roo has a nice top hat going on and the number 3 bird does nothing to impress me, but maybe you can see something I can't.
    Help me pick!

    I only think he is a roo because of his pointy feathers. I could be wrong. They are not easy for me to tell. #1 is the only one I know for sure is a roo because I have seen him try to crow.[​IMG]

    Looks like only one cockerel and the other two are pullets.

    Brabanters are so hard to tell. I had one of my "girls" start crowing yesterday.
    She is a he and at least 20 weeks old. "He" looks like roo #1.
