Are my 4 week old lavender orpingtons roos?

    I got 5 sexed girl chicks from one place and added two lavender orpingtons born supposedly the same day as the other chicks from another place. I'm worried they are both roos!! They have no tail feathers like my girls and have large pink combs. Could it just be that they are older or are developing at a faster rate? Thanks for your responses!!

    Only the last picture came through, and the LO in the bottom looks like a cockerel, on account of the large comb. I can't see the others, could you try to repost the pictures?

    I may be wrong but from what I see the 2 blues are roos and the others are hens

    Sorry, I agree with Elky, 2 cockerels....Notice how more pronounced their combs are compared to the others/pullets.
