    How old are they?

    Whites can be tough since the feathers are hard to see, but I'd guess you have a pullet in front and two cockerels in back. However, if they are near mature, it could just be two faster maturing pullets and one a bit slower than the rest.

    They're 4 months old. The lady I got them from said the one in the back with the biggest comb is a cockerel. I hope that's the only one.

    At 16 weeks, the breeder is correct, back right is definitely a boy. Back left is iffy... could be an early maturing girl or slow maturing boy. It's so hard to see the feathers on whites.

    I agree with some above. Breeder is correct. Back right cockerel, front and back left pullets. Back left wil lay sooner.
