    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    If you can post a pic, we can have a better look see as for the breed. Hard to tell from your description. However at 10 weeks old, if you have chicks with substantially larger and redder combs than the others, then yes, these will most likely be cockerels. :)

    X3 barred rock males have larger combs and wattles are lighter colored.
