    These are some orpingtons that I bought. I got them at four days old, they are now 6 weeks. They all look the same to me besides one, it is darker in color. The rest are lighter.

    First pic is a pullet, last pic (notice the red comb and wattles forming) is a cockerel, in the second pic, I see a cockerel in the background with his head up (comb and wattles again), in the third pic, there are three in a cluster, including the darker one that look like cockerels (see the combs again!)

    So that is my educated guess!

    Pullets are young hens, and cockerels are young roosters (I didn't know that at first when I just got into chickens.)
