    Hey everyone, I really need some help distinguishing if my chickens are pullets or cockerels? We are not allowed to have roosters where I live so I need to figure out what sex they might be. I was told the Brahma was a hen and I believe the Cochin is now a male considering he/she started crowing in the morning and at night. Unfortunately, I do not know how old either of them are. The more input the better because I do not want to get rid of them only to find out they were actually hens. Thanks!

    Top- pullet, feathers are rounded
    Bottom- Roo, feathers on cape are pointy

    Age I would guess between 8-11 weeks

    Looks to be 2 cockerels, the only way the top is a pullet is if it's over 20 + weeks. I raise buff brahmas and my girls are 20 weeks and have no reddening of the comb, only face.
