Got some rhode Island reds from orschlean March 17 tried are best to get all pullets however I believe we got 3 cockerls and 3 pullets. When will the cockerls comb turn red. Or will the pullets comb turn first.

Welcome to BYC!

With chicks, the cockerels will turn first -- pullets don't start to redden up until they are nearing the point of lay.  If you post photos of your birds we can help you confirm/deny your suspicions.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Cockerls comb will turn red earlier and a pullet will have a tan comb for a while

Pullets' Combs will begin to redden at a much later time than cockerels. Cockerels tend to have red Combs already by 3-4 weeks, depending on the breed sometimes earlier or later. I've had calm rosters who will perch on me and hens that have run away, that is not an accurate indication of whether a chicken is male or female.
