    The best way to get answers is to add pics to this thread with the age of each bird. And maybe number them so we can tell the BO's apart.

    The two ones there are boys. The ones eating out of your hand.

    Both of the buffs look like girls.

    Yep. Definitely boys on the two up front. Buff is definitely a girl :)

    i was thinking that the welsummer was a boy - the maran was a boy and i have two buff orpingtons that look the same which i think are girls... wonder how long i will have to wait till be 100 % sure.... when the crowing starts i guess

    I am 100% sure now. No chance that they are girls in my opinion.

    The buffs could go the other way. I have never said "Oh 100% a boy" and been wrong. On the other front, I have been.
