    How old are they? They all look like pullets to me.

    What through me was the one on the top had no tail feathers and a smaller comb than the others.

    They aren't buff orpington. They would be golden. My gut says cockerel meat birds on the first and last.

    I would argue cornishXs, but they aren’t buff orpingtons. I say give it a little more time, some birds mature slower than others.

    Thanks so much for all the input. These are my first chickens, ever and I know nothing. This site is awesome and everyone is so knowledgable and friendly. LOVE IT!

    Getting back to the issues....
    REALLY!?!?!?! I bought them at Rural King and they were sold as Buff Orpingtons. UH OH! What do you think they are? I have a small coop and can't let them free range and I wanted good layers. :(

    Definitely NOT Buff Orpingtons. Too many feathers to be any sort of Cornish X. Looks like White Leghorn to me.

    Here are some of my BOs at a similar size, probably 8 weeks or so:
