Help with Buff Orps and EEs

These babies have been suuuuper friendly lately---following me around, sitting on my lap and shoulder and chance they get. Really hoping they're ladies as I can't keep roosters

When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))

x2...I'm thinking pullet for your orpington, but the redness in the wattle is grabbing my attention.  When a white based EE starts getting those reddish-brown wing feather patches, that indicates male, so that first pretty bird is a cockerel.

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

I was thinking the top was a roo sad.png. He's been so sweet, going to have to find a home soon.

Those waddles on the buff (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) are worrying me too. I have another buff that I'm pretty sure is a pullet and hers aren't as red, but she is also a little younger I think. It's so hard to tell on the buffs! I'm going to post a close up of each buff tomorrow for comparison.
