    I think that they are probably still a little young to know for sure. I would say one of each but I am terrible with orpingtons!

    It is a little early to be 100% sure but I think you have one pullet and one cockerel.

    Looks like a pullet and a cockerel based on my experience. The one closer in the first pic is the one I suspect is a cockerel.
