Does anyone know what gender this Orpington is?

It is important to include the age of the bird - in weeks is best - as what indicates cockerel at 8 weeks can mean pullet at 12 weeks.

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

They are all 9 1/2weeks old

Can you get a photo where the bird is not covered by other birds - would like to see the plumage on the wingbow.  At the moment I am leaning heavily towards pullet, but seeing the whole bird is important as there is more to evaluate than just comb/wattle color and size.
