They are speckled Sussex and EEggers. several of them act as if they are cockerels but none of the tiny combs are turning pink yet. They are 8 weeks old in these pics. Please not only tell me your opinion but WHY you think so? I'd like to know how to tell with these breeds as I've never had them before. Thanks in advance

    I think they are all pullets as well. Pullets will spar with each other...
    I have one Speckled Sussex, now a hen, and she's my favorite.
    Good luck with your girls!
