    The barred one looks like a hen but the buff one needs a shot of the whole body including the head.

    Barred female
    Buff male

    Buff is actually hard to tell and I could be wrong, but those birds don't look to be very old and the comb seems to be large on the buff. Barred rock is definitely a female though.

    The Barred Rock is a hen, and the Buff Orpington is a Roo. ~ Aspen [​IMG]
