I'm fairly sure that I have 3 Pekin boys (9 weeks old). However, before I try and give them away for free - do you think there is any chance that any of these could be a pullet?

Also do you think that the multi-coloured one is furnace? I have a furnace hen and so it's possible that it came from her egg. However it is a lot darker than her and with less pattern. The father is lavender/wheaten. Mother might also have been a black.

I assume the buff (if a boy) is no good for breeding given the black leakage on his neck feathers?

Thanks!

Yes, you have 3 cockerels. ;-)

Can't comment on the other questions.
