    The guy got these from Ideal and they are supposed be pullets, but I am wondering if one is a cockeral. We arent keeping them, we got them because they were in a set with the white ones and we wanted one of those. I am suspecting BO. What do you think? He said they were about 5 weeks, but he also said they were from a May hatch, so that would make them at least 8 weeks and they are fully feathered.

    Pullets! At 8 weeks,I would expect a more pronounced comb.

    5-week-olds wouldnt be nearly that feathered out. They look like Hatchery Quality BO. [​IMG]

    May be buff Orpingtons. If they are BO I would have to say 3 hens.[​IMG]

    yes, very sweet! When I was living on our ranch I ordered 30 chicks from Murray McMurray(Black Australorp, Easter Egger, & Buff Orpingtons). Out of all breeds, the orps were the tamest and kindest. One rooster in particular became my best friend :eek:)
