    Orpingtons can take forever to be sexable-- slow developers, most of the time. The size of the comb is a little suspicious, but nothing else really says cockerel. So I think you will have to wait a bit longer and try again. What color would you say the comb is at this point?

    Please wait a couple weeks, then post again. Sometimes Orpingtons can be slower developing..

    Please post pics that have been taken in natural light. I can't decide if the I'm seeing pinkish on the comb or if its the heat lamp. They should be almost off of that by now, too.
