    Did you say in your other thread that they are 12 weeks old? The first one does not look like a barred rock.

    To be honest, I would not expect that much comb on wattles on any of them so I suspect they are all cockerels. I'm not sure though.

    We have 17 barred rocks about the same age as yours. We have decided that the ones with wattles and a larger comb are cockerals. We think we have 7 cockerals and 10 hens.

    Those do not look like barred rocks to me. It's hard to tell without age, but I think that they are all males.
