believe this is a rooster, because of the tail and legs, and is bigger then the other 3

How old are they now twitch? That last one looks a bit like a rooster to me unless they are nearly at laying age. Very red in the comb and wattles for a teenage girl (but maybe more time has passed than I think!)

i just went and had a look at your first post about them as babies - November 13. So they'd be about 13 weeks maybe? If that is right then I think the last is a definite boy I'm afraid. A girl would be nowhere near as red as that at that age. :-?

Agree with Nellie, no 3 is a male. No 1 a female. Not sure about no 2. Can we see a head shot?

Yes, I think the second one is a boy, just not as developed as the third. His comb and wattles are quite red. I think the first is probably a girl.

I have been told if I get a rooster that crow, to put him in a small cage, so he can not left his shin, and put him in a dark spot,

that's only if I get one that crows before I get rid of him
