    Thank You,
    I was thinking
    Pullet,
    Roo,
    Roo,
    Pullet
    as the 2 i think are pullets the combs are smaller and lighter.
    With the 2 pullets they came from are leghorns and they have large bright red combs now.

    Did you say these birds were a cross of a Black Australorp and White Leghorn? I am curious where the barred markings came from. Also, is that last chicken gray or blue?
