    I think I may have 2 Buff Orpington roosters that were supposed to be hens. One of them is significantly smaller than the other 2. Could anyone help me?

    The top 2 pics look like hens (don't know if they are the same bird or not) and the bottom one looks like a roo to me.

    Quote:I agree. It's pretty common for a rooster's legs to be reddish this time of year.

    The top 2 are the same bird. I wasnt sure if the one picture was close enough. They would not hold still for me.
