In the Brooder
- Nov 8, 2009
We have two 24 week old Buff Orps. Up until two weeks ago when we got rid of the Rock roo we accidentally got both Orps looked exactly the same. Then we went on vacation for a week, came home and there are now distinct differences in comb and waddles as well as thickness of legs and one just recently laid and egg. No one has crowed though the suspected roo makes quite a ruckus after an egg is laid. I've seen BOTH Orps sitting on the one egg I get a day. So, time to consult the BYC experts. What do you think? A roo or just a recently matured hen?
