    I posted a week ago and the consensus was most likely pullets but here they are a week older (approx 8 wks?). There is one small cockerel in the back ground of one of the pics that I will be exchanging this week because we cannot have roosters here. So I want to make sure the others are pullets before I go. Thanks!

    they seem female to me. they have very small wattle and comb growth, and that is a sign.

    Also they are darker than your young rooster. Their black barring is thicker. That's another sign they are girls. Roosters look whiter.
