    Put some up before but bad pictures. Might still be too young but just wanting some opinions.

    Looks to me like your only pullets could be 1, 7, and 8. The males have bigger, redder combs and waddles, and typically thicker legs and feet. They also have pointed saddle and hackle feathers when they get older. In the crested breeds the males tend to have wilder crests while the females will be more rounded and poofy.
