    These guts are now 10 weeks. I am pretty sure the black & white barred rock is a rooster since he crowed. I am almost positive he tried to mate with the white one but I am not sure the white one is a hen. The white one and the smaller black/white one (silver laced wyandotted???....not sure of the breed) are more aggressive than the other. What do y'all think???.:/[​IMG]

    It looks to me that the white one is the only hen based on 10 weeks old. I can't really tell on the bottom picture though.

    The red on the wings suggests the white one is a male too.

    I would say all cockerels.

    They are all cockerels. Pullets do not turn that red in the comb that early.

    I agree. I think they are all cockerels. The bottom one looks like a silver laced wyandotte. The only one that may have a chance at being a hen is the buff barred/crele looking one....But that comb is pretty big and red...So i'd say they are all roosters.
