Buff Orpingtons : Roosters or Hens?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody, sorry if I do something wrong or anything of that sort but i'm new to this website. I'm also pretty new to raising or even having chickens and I have these 4 three week old Buffs. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what gender they are? any type of help would be greatly appreciated! As you can tell they are very friendly!

I see two probable males, with a third being iffy. This is very young to accurately sex Orpingtons, maybe post again in a few weeks to confirm. But anyone getting a red comb at this age is male, sorry.

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

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

The one in the front is definitely a cockerel. I think the one in the back with the bigger pink comb is as well.
