    Hmmm, Seems a little hard to tell at this point. But I think that if you provide full body shots and comb shots we should be able to tell. The one in the right pic sort off looks like a Roo to me. Or both of them could be Pullets.

    It is hard to tell but the one in the front looks like a roo and the one in th back looks Like a pullet but I could be wrong. Either way they are really pretty.

    Orpingtons are a slow maturing breed. So it takes longer to accurately sex them. But at 9 weeks its safe to say you've got two pullets. Unless you've got a VERY slow maturing cockerel. I would expect more comb in a 9 week old cockerel.
