I have 4 chicks. I am pretty sure I have 2 of each, I just don't know which is which.
I think this is a roo
Can you get better pics of their combs? It's kind of hard to tell from those pics.
Maybe this pic is a little too close....
It is pretty early to guess, update the pics in a couple weeks and it will be a lot easier to tell.
This is just a guess, but it seems the ones that get their tail feathers early tend to be female. In your case the one you *think* is a roo has much more developed wing feathers and has sprouted a tail - when compared to the chick in the next pic, which has no tail feathers and even, short wing feathers, I'd say #2 is your roo and #1 is a pullet.
Then again, buff orps are darn near impossible to sex until they crow or lay, in my opinion. It's really hard to tell when all the feathers are the same color!!!
If this has a developing comb and it is different or more pronounced than the others it could be a roo...but I agree it is really early to tell
