    All pullets, if they were cockerels they would have white barring.

    X 2 - if they are, in fact BSL (Black Sex Links) then these are all pullets. The beauty of a sex link is that they have a sex linked characteristic - in the case of black and red sex links it is their color. Male black sex links have a dot on the top of their head as chicks and feather in barred (black and white pattern) -- female black sex links have no dot and feather in mostly black with copper leakage around the neck, chest and sometimes throughout the body.
