    These are my 6-7 week old chicks one Buff Orp and one Ameracana. I am hoping these are girls because we would have to get rid of a rooster. Those combs are starting to scare me.

    I heard when they are younger (chick age) you can tell by their feathers.... (even=males uneven=females) but at this age now you may just have to wait and see... if one is a roo... i would put it on craigslist...But in my opinion they look like girls.

    Nothing's screaming rooster at this point. I'm reasonably sure the Easter egger is female. Orpingtons I don't like to say for sure this young, because some of the males wait until over 6 months old to really look masculine.
