These Cemani's are 10 weeks old and I'm having a tough time deciding which ones are pullets and which ones are cockerels. Most if not all...I think are pullets although there might be 1 or even 2 cockerels. To be quite honest I'm stumped and would appreciate help from the experts.

Thanks in advance.

Too young to tell by feathering. Honestly not seeing any obvious cockerel here though

Thanks for your replies. These are hatches from a breeder in Colorado. I chose this breeder because the majority of her roos were/are outstanding. I have excellent stock although all of my roos had flopped combs as opposed to erect. Hers have excellent combs so I am hopping at least one of these is a roo. I am also aware that some cockerels of this breed tend to mature faster than others.

There were actually 3 others that I kept from the same batch that were obvious cockerels. They had excellent combs which were quite large even at this stage. However, two had mulberry wattles and one had streaks of white in its feathers. Needless to say they’re patiently awaiting their place on the grill.

I think I might go out on a limb and say #2 might be a cockerel.
