They are certainly not Orpingtons. Not with those large white earlobes and body type. They look to be a of mix with some sort of Mediterranean breed(s) with the earlobe color, large comb and wattles. The red and gold you see in the wings is color leakage.

Are the hens from the same mix? Do they all have white earlobes too? If so then most likely they will lay white eggs. If some have red earlobes you may get brown eggs from them.
