    Here is some of my chickens. 2 are buff Brahmas, 1 is an Ameraucana, and the other is unknown bantam.

    Not sure if they are pullets or cockerels. All around 12-16 weeks old.

    I'm not sure about #1, but #2 looks like a cockerel. The small orange one in the last pic is also a cockerel.

    Both your brahmas are cockerels. The other two look like pullets to me.

    Brahmas are definently cockerels "two buffs and a dark". Ameraucauna looks to be a pullet.

    If you have too many Roos you could start a rooster flock... I made a thread on it in "Flock management".

    Out of my 70 plus chickens we probably have 10 or so roosters.

    What about this little blue Cochin? Cockerel? It doesn't act like a rooster at all. And doesn't have saddle feathers Like my little black Cochin bantam. Both are 10 ish weeks.
