Rooster or Hen?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
These guys where hatched around the 10th of June...I am thinking they are Roos but heard Buff Orpingtons are very hard to tell until they crow or lay.
I was going to keep them until one of those happened but they have an incredible opportunity to be rehomed on a big farm as early as tomorrow so I need to make a my decision now!

Pullets don't start to turn red in the comb until they are over 14 weeks old. Those two look like they've been red in the comb for a while now. If you could get some better shots of the the feathering on their backs, it will help confirm that they are males.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

X 3  you really need, good, clear close ups.   Even enlarging your photo we can not see them clearly enough plus hard to try and see around fencing, etc.

Pretty sure they're both cockerels, but better pics will confirm.
