    All three are roosters, and I'm not sure on the breed - perhaps black copper marans? Just guessing based on the coloration and the feathered legs.

    Not too sure in age..we purchased them at auction yesterday as hens. However, we were beginning to wonder if they mixed up the roosters with hens.

    X2 on Marans.

    Yup. You've got three pretty boys there. :/ Is there any way you can return them? I've never done an auction before so I have no idea if you have recourse.

    It certainly appears that way... Did you see the birds before you purchased them?
