Hi all,

I purchased 2 Buff Orpington chicks. I was told that one was a week older than the other. The approx. hatch date of the older chick was March. 1. However, the younger one developed a red comb and red under the beak very quickly, and the other one still doesn't have that. The younger one is also a little more aggressive. I am afraid it is a rooster. Is anyone able to tell from the picture?

Thanks so much for any help.
My guess would be that yes, that bird in the front is a roo! That is a lot of red wattle and comb! And it even seems to have some attitude in that pic lol
