    I's guess 3 pullets... and 2 cockerels. the light barred and the last one are cockerels.

    the red in the comb and waddles is a good indication at their age.

    I don't know anything about hamburgs, but I would say that's a pullet. The buff orp looks like a pullet. The dark br is a pullet and the light one is a cockeral. The blue orp is a cockeral.

    the hamburg and buff orp look fairly pullet-ish....

    the darker barred rock is a pullet and the lighter one is a roo..

    the blue orp looks splash, and fairly roo-ish. combs that early on a orpington usually means roo [​IMG]

    I would say all pullets except the light colored BR (one on the right) and the blue orp, both of which look like cockerels.
