    Anyone able to hazard a guess as to the gender of my BOs? First picture was take at 9 weeks and second at almost 12.[​IMG][/IMG]

    I only see one photo, but they look like roos compared to my buff hens that are a few weeks older.

    They look like roos to me as well. My girls are 12 weeks and still have pale, tiny combs and barely any wattles at all.

    Thanks for weighing in. I can't keep roosters in town so will have to rehome these fellows.

    I see all rooster heads- not sure about the headless chick on the far left or about the one on the far right with it's face turned so we can't see the comb.
    Here's a Buff Orp pullet faces at 5 weeks of age for comparison:

    Dang. I was hoping for one or two[​IMG] Now I will have to get rid of all but one and find some hens. I was pretty sure the three with the dark red combs would be Roos while the other four, one with hardly a comb and others with short comb and pinkish were hens.

    I see at least 3 cocks, two of the chicks heads aren't showing enough for gender identification.
