    There are 2 Swedish flower hens and one silver spangled swiss chick. I bought them from a straight run and already have a lavender buff that is definitely a male. But these three I need some help with. Any ideas?

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    Sorry, I don't know much about Swedish Flower Hens. But, I would guess that the bird in the third photo is a male.

    Good luck with them!

    I wouldn't hazard a guess, I don't know those breeds but they certainly are pretty chicks.
