    Bought these young birds about a month ago. I believe the two on the left and the second from top on the right may be cockerals? Also, think they may be 9-11 weeks old, but don't really know as the previous owner had no information to share, not even breed ( I believe they are Australorpe?)
    Guesses much encouraged and welcome! :)[​IMG]

    They do look like astralorps. Probably about 4 months.

    all pullets. I don't see any comb development at this time, which I would expect from roos.

    They are Australorps from what I can tell, and all pullets. They would be over 6 weeks for sure - but I wouldn't say they would be any older than 12. My guess would be 8-9 weeks old.

    Roosters with straight combs are easy to spot at 8 weeks old for sure. These are almost for sure pullets. I don't want to say there are no chances, but you can be pretty confident there are no roosters in this group!
