That's my thoughts as well do blue cochins have large combs?

It may be a week or so early to tell on the Orpingtons but I would say the Cochins are roosters. If there is any red color at all in the combs at this age they are males. A female may have a bit of comb depending on the breed but should not be reddish or bright pink. ;)

I've not raised cochins, but they look like roos.  The combs on the orps are not visible enough in the pic for me to dare to guess.
