    I don't know about the buff babies...but I'd guess the cochin is a roo by how large & pronounced the comb is....

    Usually when hatcheries send "popcorn" with your order, it's almost always extra males.

    The first 2 look like Rhode Island Reds. I wouldnt get rid of the cochin until you know for sure. They can surprise you sometimes.

    It's awful early to know for sure on that Cochin.

    Here's one that I think must be a roo......
