Ameraucana & Buff Orpington pullets or cockerels?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've got my little flock of 8 week old birds, 3 Ameraucanas and 3 buff Orpingtons. I'm having some issues identifying their genders. At this point I'm thinking either all pullets OR 2 cockerels in there. Could I get some more seasoned opinions? Thank you smile.png

I think that the Easter Eggers/Ameraucanas are all pullets.  Two of the Orpingtons may be cockerels or perhaps there are two pictures of the same bird.  :idunno

Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Yaaaay! This is definitely what I want to hear 😊
The buff is two pictures, same bird, it's of course the one we are most concerned about with those waddles and comb!
