D. 4 week old Silkie cross

 

E. 5 week old Sizzle

 

F. 4 week old mixed breed

 

G. 5 week old mixed breed

 

H. 5 week old mixed breed

 

I. 12 week old Frizzle

I'd say, too soon to tell. It will be a long time before they crow anyway.

Before I knew my neighbors didn't care or couldn't hear them, I would always butcher a rooster a few days after their first feeble crow.

Now I have about 10 roosters.

I agree.

All of them look like roosters to me expect for A and F.  It's hard to tell at this age though.

B, E, H, and I look like cockerels to me. They're all still a little young to be sure, though.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

too early especially with silkie crosses,  I'd love to know what the other parent was   -  C & D  are adorable.

It's too early for definitive sexing, but I would guess B, C, E, G, H, and I are cockerels, and A, D, and F are pullets.
