    The biggest ones are 11 weeks, and the smaller ones are 8 weeks old.

    This is what i was beginning to fear as they all look like pullets to me as well. How do i buy 10 straight run chicks and get all pullets? Should I give it more time, or should I buy a rooster now as I do want some spring chicks if at all possible?

    No need to fear - consider yourself the luckiest person out there, go buy a lottery ticket and then take advantage of all the unwanted roosters that are available this time of year as those less fortunate than you discover those surprise cockerels in their "pullets".
