6-7 weeks old Buff Orpington...Hen or Roo? - Page 4

post #31 of 33

Beautiful BO cockerel!

Hope he stays sweet for you!

I have 6 BO pullets in my flock and I adore them!

Also have a White Leghorn cockerel named Rocky (he was supped to be a pullet like his 5 sisters).Whoops!

His comb and wattles are huge and red at 8 weeks old and he's trying to crow. It's cute! He's very tall as well and his saddle feathers are starting to come in.

I hope HE stays sweet for me! Say a prayer please!

So the guessing ended this morning. My Sunny Boy found his voice and crowed a couple of times this morning!!! Very loudly too I might add. LOL.. Now hoping the neighbors don't mind him staying around. ;) Thanks everyone for all the help and compliments!
