2 Silkies 11 weeks old. I still have no idea if they are going lay or crow. Any ideas?

Okay Crew, a question for you all. What makes you say "pullet" - as in, I have five a little younger - a 10-week-old and four 8-9 weeks, all white - and I have no way of telling until I get either a good crow or an egg dropped into my hand! I'm pretty sure two of the youngest are cockerels, simply because they face-off from time to time. I need to leg-band them, so I can be sure it's the same two. Other than behavior, which I don't totally trust because my submissive "pullet" started crowing earlier this year, I have no idea what to look for in a Silkie. Can someone educate me a little? Please?
