Male or Female???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Buff Orpingtons around 6 weeks old. I got them together when they were just a few days old. (Straight run) Could one just be developing faster? I'm hoping we don't have a rooster! At what age will I know for sure?

Rooster and pullet.
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.

One is 100% cockerel. The other might be a cockerel as well (smaller comb, but red wattles), but a bit slower to develop than the other. Pullets do not start to pink up in the comb at only 6 weeks. A pullet won't start to turn pink until she is getting close to being ready for egg laying.
