6 Buff orpingtons and 7 Easter Eggers, what gender are they?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

These are all just over 4 weeks. One of the buff orpingtons is totally looking like a rooster, but not sure how to tell the EE's apart at all. Thanks for any help! 

 

 

 

 

Thinking rooster for sure.

Even though they are too young to say for certain, I would say you have at least one cockerel on your hands.

No, the one without as many adult feathers isn't the same as the one with a bigger comb.

Females tend to feather in faster, so keep an eye on that one.
