Buff orpingtons....male or female?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We have 7 Buff Orpington chicks we got from TSC who are now about 2 1/2 weeks old.  One already has a pretty prominent comb and some red....just wanted to get thoughts on what they all may be.  I know it's still early, I'm mostly just curious to see if you all have the same guesses as I do.  I'm listing them by the color of the zip tie around their leg.

So far they all seem like pullets... Some mature faster than others. We thought we had a Roo scare several times with our nine hens and they are all girls. Enjoy them! Orpingtons are beautiful birds!

Do some of them have white feathers in the wings, or is it just the lighting?

Just the lighting. Some do have lighter feathers, but they're all buff 😊

They are still too young to guess. Orpingtons can be slow to mature, so if any start turning pink in the comb by 10 weeks old, those would be the cockerels.

This one's been making me nervous lol. But, they were straight run, so I'm expecting quite a few boys. (This is the chick labeled red) enhance
