I don't see any obvious roos at this point. Orpingtons and Australorps are slower-developing birds, however and are tricky to sex at this age.

What breed is the partridgey bird at the bottom? That's not a male feather pattern, but it also has a lot of wattle development for eight weeks.

I don't know what the bottom one is, either; sorry.

The Barred Rock look female to me. Does this pic help? Cockerel on the left, two pullets on the right (photo by Susan Garten).
