    The one with it's head up in the front: kind of white and yellow splotchy. They are currently 5 weeks old.

    Also, they have more of crest than the other babies, but is it too young to tell if they're roos? All three of this breed have the more pronounced crest.

    I got an assortment from Cackle Hatchery, but they couldn't tell me what breeds were possibilities. I just looked online and they have a "Golden Comet" hybrid (which is sex-linked), so that could be what I have.

    Looks like a Golden Comet, which is a form of the Red Sex-link.

    It's a Red Sex Link. Cackle markets Red Sex Links under three different labels; Red Sex Link, Cinnamon Queen, and Golden Comet, depending on which silver gene hen was used in the cross, but they are all essentially the same bird (Red Sex Links), produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a silver gene hen.
