    Looks like all roos to me too! I bought 8 chicks this spring. 2 bantys (hens) 2 black something or other and 4 gold orps. I ended up with only one hen besides the bantys. Ugh!

    Wow, all roosters! Should be some good eating, lol.

    Here is a picture of 2 roos and a hen for comparison. They are around 8 weeks.

    Don't give up ... the one in the first pic and the one in the back in the third pic could be iffy. I know my buff hens all have substantial combs, so you can't always judge by that.

    Don't worry! Some Buff pullets are VERY masculine looking! You could still have lots of pullets!
