Need help sexing my Buff orpington

Thread Starter 
Okay I need some help. My babies are about 6 weeks old .... give or take a week. 😕 Not sure of the sex..(i am afraid they are roos 😓😢).. Was hoping for hens!

I think that they are probably still a little young to know for sure. I would say one of each but I am terrible with orpingtons!

It is a little early to be 100% sure but I think you have one pullet and one cockerel.

Breeds I raise: Easter Eggers, Naked Necks, PROJECT white d'Uccles, Mille fleur d'Uccles, RI reds, Barred PR's, Assorted Cochins, GLW's, Sexlinks, Mutts, and one Lavender Orpington!

Turkeys: Bourbon Red ~ Standard Bronze

Ducks: Blue ripple and black Muscovys

I was thinking the same thing.

Looks like a pullet and a cockerel based on my experience. The one closer in the first pic is the one I suspect is a cockerel.
