    Getting pics are hard so I took this video. Let me know what you guys think? I've got 4 Buff Orpingtons and 2 Easter Eggers, all about 8 weeks old. 3 of which I suspect are roosters.

    The easter egger that I think is a roo and the Buff that is obviously a roo (her/his name is Dorothy) kind of quarrel sometimes, nothing crazy but the Buff roo seems to be the boss of the chickens and sometimes the EE tries to step to him and Dorothys like, no way bro

    Anyway here's the video:


    Any input is appreciated!! Also, sorry I couldn't really see with sun glaring on my screen so I wasn't getting as great of shots as I thought. :(

    Could you try to get photo's? It would be much easier to determine the tail and neck feathers as well as the comb size if they were in photos.

    I took some screen shots from your video and this is what I think (I may not be correct, this is just my opinion):


    And this one looks a bit like a rooster as well:



    Hope it helps!
