    I'm pretty sure its a rooster but not sure of breed. The guy at the feed store said they were told New Hampshire red but maybe buff orpington.[​IMG]

    Not a buff Orpington, the guy told you correctly I think, definitely a rooster.

    I figured he was a rooster, not a big deal there since i am pretty sure he is the only one.

    Would you think this is a New Hampshire pullet?

    That looks more like a red sexlink pullet. New Hampshires have black in the tail.

    Thanks! Now i have to take some pics of the other ones to ask about them as well. Two of the other "new hampshire" pullets are a bit bigger body wise and there is another pullet that looks just like the one above. The two slightly bigger gals have more yellow downy heads even though they are in process of growing their big kid feathers
