    I know nothing about Orps, but I think they are both pullets. Could change my mind if a full on side view of #1 showed saddle feathers, but going to stick with both being pullets. They are cute!

    Both are pullets. [​IMG]

    ETA: Are you sure they are that age? I have a LF buff Orpington, and her comb isn't nearly that big, and she is almost 6 months old!

    I have some and the combs on the cockerels are very noticeable at a young age. You have two pullets.
