    The pictures don't really tell me a thing. Could you get shots of their heads/combs?

    From the last pic of all 5 in the pen, I don't see any signs of cockerels. But it's too far away for me to be positive.

    oddly enough the way i tell on Brahmas what they are if mine are not sex linked... i go with the development of the tail.... I have found (in my flock) that the tails on males are slower to grow out. so often in brahmas the "immature" looking ones compared to others of the same age have a high chance of being roosters...

    the first one you are holding will be male.
    too hard to see the tail end of the others....
