    OK I got what was suppose to be 3 black stars. I just posted one yesterday and came to the conclusion she is an Ameraucana.
    The other two not sure what do you think.
    First one I think is a hen and I named her Cat but not sure what the breed is possibly mixed.

    They look like mixed breeds.Most hatchery BSL/Black Stars will have a single comb.Some rose comb combos can create sex links, but aren't commonly used .

    I agree, look like they're mixed. That's ok, they'll still lay eggs lol.

    The 2nd one looks iffy to me, the rust on the wings and tail suggest rooster, but mixed breeds can throw things off (I bred mixed barnyard mixes and 3 that I thought were cockerals turned out to be hens)
