    I'd wait for a few weeks and send pics again - members are more likely to be able to help you out. Don't worry, your boys will not begin crowing for a few months.

    By 5-6 weeks most cockerels will be showing considerable red coloring in combs/wattles.

    BTW, pullets/hens can make quite a lot of noise too.

    Nobody looks like a cockerel, yet, but that can change in another week or two.
