    I had to take them off roost to get photos! Sorry they aren't that great! I'm pretty sure that "E" is a rooster! I'm not certain about the rest. They are 8 weeks old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    I read where a rooster would be real red in the comb and waddle (such as 6 of 7 or E). The rest aren't that deep red at all. I didn't know if different breeds may turn more red down the road?

    This is the best I could do. They are still kinda skiddish. I negated the "for sure" rooster.

    I say A, D, and E are cockerels.
