    how can i tell them apart? I THINK I got one buff orp and two red stars but actually they all look alike. one day i'm convinced they are all red stars, the next day i am sure they are all buffs...hahahah


    the wing feathers are creamy colored buff but now the shoulder area is coming in and it definately looks redder....

    Do you have a pic? How old are they?? Mine have gotten a lot lighter with age. I would say the red stars are more orangy. [​IMG]

    will work on pics...

    they are 3 and 4 weeks.

    if they are all red stars well no problem really. no roos. haha. but if they are all orps i'm thinking i can tell a roo already! or just the top of the pecking order maybe. but it sure acts like a rooster.

    yeah orangy
