    I am new to chickens and just built my first coop. Have 2 Buff Orpingtons and 1 Americauna. The Americauna seems a little bossy. The Americauna tries to pick on both of the Buffs but one of them wont let him. Just curious to know if this 11 week old looks like a Pullet or Cockerel? Of the Buffs the bigger of the 2 is the one that takes up for the other..

    I don't know about the amricauna, but the buffs look like pullets to me.

    [​IMG] I don't know how true it is but many say that a bird with reddish coloring on the wings is usually a roo.
