    Hercules is a roo the one that you think is a pullet is a pullet and the shy one is a roo. Is the shy one also the one sitting beside the pullet in the picture of the two?

    I too...bought some Buffs in April..April 14th..and I am also waiting to hear a crow or get an egg!!! These chickens seem to be a layed back and in no hurry to crow or to lay an egg.. I was told to start mine on laying crumbles. That it would throw them into laying quicker, BUT then I was told that if you gave them the laying crumbles to early THAT it could mess their laying cycle up or make them to where they can't lay!!!!! SO..I have decided to let nature do its own thing.. I am finding out that all chickens are different..they are all individuals that will do their own thing in their own time. You have some very pretty BO.. I really have enjoyed mine.

    It sure looks like a rooster to me. I have a BO that was hatched 6/1/08. He has been crowing since 8 weeks and acting like a roo prematurely. Notices everything, protects girls from predators with verbal warnings, puffs up alot and tries to mount the girls. He looks very similar to yours. My BO hens look like yours as well; what I mean is, not much in the way of waddles or comb. I think you've got a rooster there! Have you noticed that he/she is the first one in the flock to greet you when you come out? That should have been my first clue.
