    I have found a local man that has a flock of buff orpingtons and he is hatching chicks, but since I am in a suburban area I only want pullets. Since they obviously aren't going to step up and tell me what they are I'm needing advice on how to tell them apart, and since I can get them as soon as the hatch day should be able to sex them with some guidance.

    Unless you can vent sex them, and few really have that talent since it takes awhile to learn it well, I don't think you can pick out Buff Orp pullets with any certainty as hatchlings.
