    These guys are 9 weeks old. Some of them I can clearly identify as roosters, and one I am fairly certain is a pullet, but they all look so different that I can't really tell with the others. I am planning to keep one rooster, and take the others to a livestock auction next week. Thanks!
    #1- my guess is rooster:

    #4- this is another one we are fairly certain is a rooster:

    And finally #8, the only one I feel confident is a pullet:

    Thanks so much for any insight!

    8 is a hen 100%. 5 & 6 may be hens also. 1 is 100% cockerel. The rest look like a cocks.

    I am not good enough to try and guess which are which but I agree 100% with Mountain peeps that # 1 is a roo.

    #8 appears to be your only pullet. All of the others look like cockerels to me.

    Would it help if I have pics of them standing normally? When I look at all of the pics I posted it does look like mostly all Roos, but when I'm watching them in the coop there are some that look more like hens. Also, there is such a huge difference in size in the past week or so. Is that normal at this age?
    Thanks again for all your help. I have a whole other group of RIR, Cochins and brahmas that I will need help with in a few weeks!

    To me, only #8 looks like a pullet. All the others exhibit the splotchy coloring, white on the wings, and large red combs of males.

    I agree with these! 8 is your only pullet!

    I tried to get a few more pics of their bodies. Can anyone give me hope that any of these might be girls?

    Sorry but after seeing those, they are all males.
