    I think your assessment of their sex is correct.

    I'm seeing nothing rooish about #8. No pink in that comb at all, is there? #7 looks more boyish than #8.

    Also, #5 might be a pullet. I've had little cochin pullets who get pink in the face quite early, but their combs and wattles don't get big like the boys as early. There was one that I was certain was a cockerel by all the red in its comb by 4 or 5 weeks, but the comb never got very big and she turned out to be a pretty little hen.
