    They are 12-13 weeks old and one of them is crowing but can't figure out which one it is.

    They all look like cockerels because of their tail feathers. [​IMG]

    Those are all cockerels.

    Was it an EE rooster over various hens? if the rooster was not barred, and some of the hens were, you made sex links and any of the barred offspring are going to be male.

    Thanks for the replies. Only going to keep 2 or 3 cockerels. The rest will taste good.
