    I'm pretty sure, at LEAST one is a roo, because i heard a crow. I just dont remember which one. I know these have EE, in them, other than that, i don't know what. They SHOULD be of the age to be laying.......IF they're hens. They were born Oct (ish). Any suggestions, on how ro tell?

    Saddle feathers. If you don't know what that is look it up and look at photos then look at your birds. The one angled to the camera showing side has what looks to me as saddle feathers. Looking at the other two I'm guessing they do too.

    I agree about that roo. For the other two we need to see standing, side profiles to check them for saddle & hackle feathers which define gender.
