A few days ago one or two of our chickens have started to crow - they are all 12 weeks old. We think our two Barred Rocks may be the roosters. What do you think?

I think both are boys. Cockerels look lighter than pullets with finer, more even barring. Plus they have well developed combs and wattles for 12 weeks.
