Cray ID, please?

I went to petco tonight and they had these 3 crays in there. I asked how much they were, and they looked around for a price for a few minutes before someone else came up and said "Oh, those came in with the feeders, just give 'em to the guy." So now, I have the crays. They are all seperated. They told me that they could be housed together, but since they didn't know anything else about them, I don't trust them. I know basic cray care, but can anyone give me an ID so I can research them some more?

It's about 2.5" or so

It might be Procambarus clarkii. Although a lot of them are red, other color morphs do exist in the wild.

If not than maybe it's some sort of Orconectes species?

generally crays shouldnt be kept together as they are vulnerable when they molt...especially with other crays around

Yeah, I've only got one of them left. It looks to be a Procambarus Cubensis
