    Thanks everybody for your help - unless I hear 'roo' from Speckled Hen or another super duper BR expert, I guess I'll keep them and hope for the best. It sounds like they look more like pullets than cockerels to most of you experienced BR owners.

    Last time I bought chicks from this feed store, I bought 2 of every kind I wanted in case a few ended up being cockerels - we got lucky and ended up with all pullets (although they did give us a 90% accuracy rate, when asked). They have a pretty good record -I'm just hoping I didn't pick out one of the few males.
