6 week old BO gender

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 2 Buff Orpington chicks that are about 6 weeks old and I'm curious about their gender.

The one in front has a redder comb and waddles than the other, but it also feathered out first and seems to be ahead developmentally. Is it too early to determine gender?
Here is a little closer picture of them. I apologize for the poor quality, but they don't stay still for long...

The one does look to be a rooster by comb color.

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.
