    Is this a boy or a girl??? I have three Buff Orps- one for sure is a pullet, one for sure is a cockerel, but I have no clue about this one! S/he is about 14 weeks old.

    Here are two more pictures. Not sure if they're any better.

    Here's all three of them. The one of the left is Sunny, the roo, the one in the middle is Christmas, the pullet, and then "Buffy" (I hope!) is on the right. Her comb/wattles are bigger than the pullets but not as big as the cockerel's, so I just don't know.

    Well, see, here's what happened. I ordered 4 BOs from Ideal back in January. 2 males, 2 females. In March, I spent a week in the hospital (with E. Coli... what fun! [​IMG] ) and when I came home, one of my Orps was missing! GONE! Vanished!! Nobody knew what happened to it. It was the strangest thing! Never found a feather or a body. And, they are kept in the chicken pen so the dogs or cats couldn't have got ahold of it. Anyhow, I'm hoping this is a girl. And if it is, I guess it's a good thing I ordered an extra roo just in case.
