Are these possibly roosters?

    I am a semi new chicken owner and have never had a rooster in the past. I have two Buff Orpingtons and two Plymouth Barred Rocks. I believe one Buff is a rooster and one, maybe two Plymouths are roosters. One Plymouth is lighter in color and has a decent wattle and comb, while the other is darker and has a small, not so prominent wattle.
    It would be nice to get opinions.

    I think your suspicions are correct.

    Do you think both Plymouths are roosters?

    Yes, the last one *may* have a very small chance of being a pullet but I kind of doubt

    I think the last one (photo) is a pullet . She has darker barring and the black wash over her legs. It would be easier if your photos also included natural standing profile
