    Hi everyone, my 12 week old buff orpington has started stretching its neck out and opening it's mouth but not much sound comes out. Is this bird a rooster? Thanks!

    The one I'm talking about has some dirt on its nose and is upright.

    From that stance he/she could be a rooster, but a picture of the comb, side, and tail would help. :)

    Is the other one with it the same age?

    We believe so. We got both of them at 6 weeks and that was 6 weeks ago.

    I'm really new to this, but the comb looks different to me and different from my Buff Orpington pullet, so I would lean towards cockerel.

    Do not worry yet, it is too early. They both look girls to me. Post pictures of both, when they are 16 weeks.I am pretty sure it is girl, but there is always small chance of turning other way.
