    I know I've got one. I can hear a random roo call, but have yet to see who's making it. I think I have two. Help?

    At least 1&3 look male to me. They have large wattles and thick feet. Can't see the feet on #2, so I'm just going by lack of wattles....

    I also think they all look like cockerels. They have that leggy look to them.

    How old are they?

    They're about 12 weeks old. They were "pullets" but I knew the bantams were a risk lol I wish they'd all pull a sex change....

    They are all cockerels. Don't be fooled by the lack of wattles on #2. The beard/muffs gene prevents wattle development.
