    Buff Orpingtons 16 weeks old. I got the chicks from one hen from a hatchery. There is one that I didn't get a picture of that is alot darker and has different shades in the tail feathers, I think it is a roo for sure. The others dont look like him, they are all light colored, but some have combs and some dont?

    all three of them look like pullets to me. The difference in comb size can help you determine which ones are closest to point of lay. The second photo appears to be a pullet who is closer to POL than the other two.
