    these birds are 4 months old now. one is darker yellow out of the 4. it seems to be the most dominant and has thicker legs but one of the 3 light ones is getting the tall comb and bigger wattles.

    You should probably post this in the "What breed or gender is this" section of BYC. You may get more responses there. [​IMG]

    The tail has a slight curve at the end of his tail feathers. Also the comb is a bit larger. Just wait a while and you might hear a Cock-a-doodle-do! Good luck! Are you wanting a Roo or Pullet?

    If it's dominant and annoying, it's probably just a Buff Orpington. Mine sure is. Sometimes it's so obnoxious that I wish it were a roo so it'd have to go (can't have roos here). Good luck.

    I tell you what my BO Roo is 4 months old and this is what he looks like! I love him and he is a big sweetie. I think you have females... but if you would like to adopt my baby~ I sadly can't keep him. No roo's in my neighborhood [​IMG]
