    I think Pink and Red bands are cockerels, and the orange and black band is pullet - but i def need other eyes to help determine.

    Red looks like a cockerel because of the comb size, but the rest look like pullets. I think the light is washing out the color of red-banded chick's comb, it looks like it could brighter than the others, too.

    I agree no one's screaming cockerel at this point. But, Orps can fool you and sometimes not mature until several months old [​IMG].
