Welcome to BYC! Not sure if you had a post mishap or if you need to have a minimum post number to share pictures. Could you try again so we can help you out? :)

At only 12 weeks, I'm thinking the Orps are both cockerels. Not too familiar with Vorwerks, but I think they're both pullets.

Thank you, its the Orps that i can't tell with mainly as one has more of a square tail, and slightly longer hackles, whilst the other one (chook 3) has a more rounded looking tail but larger wattles and he/she feathered up last. which makes me think it's a he.

As for the Vorwerks what ever sex they may be, they are both the same as.

If these are hens, when would they start laying their first eggs?
