    ..if they are boys or girls. At 12 weeks shouldn't they have more tail feathers? One's comb is definitely more pink than the other.

    I'm thinking the red comb one is a rooster, and Orpingtons don't have very large tails.

    I think darker is a roo. Lighter looks pullet like through comb but those are some legs!! My 11 week old orp roo has notable large red comb and BIG legs compared to my pullets. Also he is very very erect in stance. He has less tail than the pullets. They are very pretty!
