    Hi Everyone! New chicken mom here.
    We have three buffs in the mix that are all super-sweet like chicken-dogs :). Supposed to be a 90% chance they are hens but....
    We can't keep roos in our town, so I am wondering how hard it is to tell with these guys. Any guesses? All the tails look the same.
    From left to right. Buttercup, Susie Q, Miss. Rumphius. Miss. Rs comb got pecked so its healing.
    Thanks!! IMG_4583.jpg IMG_4585.jpg

    I would wait until they’re at least 8 weeks old to accurately guess their sex, especially with Orpingtons as they’re slow maturers.

    They all look like pullets to me but I'd post again in a few weeks to confirm
