    Brown Leghorns can be sexed by color as soon as the chest is feathered. Females have a reddish brown chest. Males have solid black chests.

    They are all cockerels. Pullets have a much different color pattern.

    I agree they're all cockerels. Pullets have a different color, most noticeably reddish/salmon feathers on the breast.
