    Just the cocks. I believe you can show cockerels undubbed.

    Yes, you only dub the males. You can show cockerels untrimmed but they are not likely to win. Their odds are much better if you go ahead and dub them. Mature roosters must be dubbed or they will be disqualified.

    Cockerels have to be dubbed by November of the year they are hatched. (I assume this means if they hatched in the Spring. But if they hatched later, they wouldn't be old enough to show anyway.)
