    These two were born November 3rd. I know it is kinda difficult to know for sure what gender they are. I have my suspicions however I was just liking a second opinion. I can post more pics if needed of them standing. Thanks in advance!

    at 10 weeks old, showing that much comb and pinkness.. I say both are roosters. hens wouldn't start looking like that until close to laying age.

    It's not difficult at all to tell what gender they are. They're both males.

    The difficulty with buff orps comes when you have late maturing males--those can be a real pain. But this much comb and color, this young, is all boy.
