    The buff colored one looks like my orpingtons. I would say you have several pullets there. The first black one and the white one look like pullets to me. I've only had chickens for one year so I'm very much a newbie at this. I will say that I and many others on this board thought several of mine were roos based on comb size and color...and they all ended up being hens. Different breeds simply mature at different times.

    This year I have several of the same breeds and some are very obvious as to their gender.

    Good luck, nice looking chicks [​IMG]
