    9 week old Buff Orpington, rooster or hen!?

    We have a 9 week old Buff Orpington, is it a rooster or a hen? We’re thinking rooster? We only got one of this breed in our batch of 12 chicks so we don’t have another one to compare it to. We are also new to chickens, so we’d love to know! Thanks!

    I've been raising chickens since 2012. I started while in culinary school after seeing films of chicken factory farms. I decided that I wanted to grow my own eggs. I have 8 laying hens, three pullets who are approaching maturity, and one duck. I have 3 Amerauracanas, 3 Gold-Sex Links, 1 Dark...

    3w/o BO chick - Cockerel traits early on, or no?

    Hey all, I know 3 weeks is too early to definitively sex... this is my favorite little chick - incredibly chill, sits right in your palm and falls asleep, and looks you right in the eyes. (just like a buff orpington chick we hatched a year ago that is one of our hens)... So I’m not noticing any...

    My experience with Buff Orps and Past Regrets

    I got into chickens when I was probably around 8 or 10 years old. My brother who was in high school at the time played a big part in getting baby chicks. We had so many chicks (so many!! Lol), and the majority were straight run. Well one of my favorite and most remembered birds happened to be...

    Is it normal to see their pink skin as they begin to feather?

    First time chicken mama over here and we’re loving it! However, our babies are almost 3 weeks old and they’re beginning to feather, but we’re not sure if it’s normal to see so much pink from their skin when they do. They seem happy and never seem to be itching or pecking at their skin. Also...

    Buff cockerel??

    Hey guys!! I realize I am jumping the gun on sexing as my guy is only about 2-3 weeks old. But...I am suspecting this fella is a cockerel! this is based on comparison with his suspected “pullet” sister’s appearance characteristics. She doesn’t have as pronounced comb and legs are much more...
