    Judging by their combs, they are pullets. They are very well feathered and I would guess that they are a bit older than 4-5 weeks. Personally, I've only ever seen Buff Orpingtons, which are a solid color. These may be a mixed breed since they are not a solid color.

    Also, there is a forum section under "Chicken Breeds" called "What Breed or Gender Is This?" where more people may be able to help you out.

    Good luck with your new ladies! [​IMG]

    Everyone looks female to me.

    Not sure how invested you are in having Orpingtons, but those aren't pure bred birds. Regardless, mixed breed pullets are not a bad way to go for a backyard flock.
