    These are all just over 4 weeks. One of the buff orpingtons is totally looking like a rooster, but not sure how to tell the EE's apart at all. Thanks for any help!

    Even though they are too young to say for certain, I would say you have at least one cockerel on your hands.

    In pic 2 I saw one orp who did not seem to have as many adult feathers, it that the same one with the large comb?

    No, the one without as many adult feathers isn't the same as the one with a bigger comb.

    Females tend to feather in faster, so keep an eye on that one.
