    Those are pullets. Cockerels don't look anything like that. Pretty early on, cockerels will start to get black feathers on the chest. Those look to be a few months old. At that point, the roos would have much larger combs and wattles than those. There wouldn't be any doubt if you had a roo.

    Male chickens have pointed neck feathers and small pointy spurs. Females have rounded neck feathers and small flat bumps where spurs shound be.

    Yep both pullets! I see a glimpse of white earlobes but need closer look at the earlobes.

    The rooster should look like this:
