    So I have three buff orps around 6 weeks of age. One is definitely a rooster and one is definitely a pullet. I just can't figure out number three. What do you guys think?

    Cheeto the rooster

    Frito the pullet

    Any thoughts on Dorito? ([​IMG] for a pullet)

    muesky Got Peacocks?

    I could be mistaken but it seems Dorito is a girlie chicken (hen). She does not seem to have developed waddles or a large comb.

    Ahhh, see? We have a 50/50 split already. That Dorito is a tricky one!

    The comb is redder than Frito's but not as red as Cheeto's. There are touches of pinkish under his/her beak, but nothing like Cheeto's. I guess I"m going to have to wait for a crow or an egg to pop out. Darn it!

    Looks like a pullet to me.

    If it's not a pullet, I'm in trouble because my 8 week old "hens" look like "her"..
