    oh by 14 weeks there was no doubt I had a roo. Waddles to his knees and a comb that split the air. Okay, not that bad, but those all look like pullets to me

    Those are definitely pullets. If they were cockerels their combs would be 10 times bigger and they would be bigger in size too. Also, they're feathers would be more pointed around the neck and towards their back end; not to mention the tail feathers would be long, shiny, and curved looking.
