I was certain that all these buffs were female. What are your thoughts ?

    Iooking at these pics (unlike the other thread) is have to say pullets despite the redness of the combs. I don't see any other male features

    I would say pullets as well I think. If they were cockerels I would expect to see male feathering by now. :)

    They look like cockerels to me. That's a lot of comb for Orpingtons this age.

    Agree on the comb size/color but would expect to see some darker saddle/hackles by now
