    I am new to chickens so I'd wait until other with more experience comment, but my guess would be that your Welsummer and Maran are both cockerels. I'd guess the Orpingtons are pullets.

    I'm absolutely 100% certain the Wellie is a roo, the Marans is most likely a roo as well, but I don't have experience with that breed.

    Does one of your buff orpington have keg feathering? it looks like it, if so its not a buff orpington.

    It is a buff Orp, but has a flaw. Buff Orpingtons derived from Cochins many years ago. They definitely shouldn't have leg feathering, but it's not unheard of.

    Both of your Orpingtons are girls. The other two are definitely boys (the Welsummer & Marans).
