    I purchased this chick as assorted reds , while a few are much darker and look like the common RIR, i have a couple that are much lighter colored. The bird in this pic is about 6 weeks old and i think more resembles a buff orpington, but i know reds come in different varieties and colors . So what do you guys think?? how about if its a pullet or cockerel. the other bird in the pic is the same age at about 6 weeks , looks like a golden laced wyandotte, any input on his gender. i know you cant see his comb to good.
    thanks in advance

    It looks like you have a buff orp cockerel, and a little bantam cockerel. I don't think it's a wyandotte, based on the greenish legs. But, I've got very little experience with wyandottes, so someone else will have to be the judge. Both boys, though.

    Yeppers you got a Buff Orp I'm sure he may be a male but the only true way to tell is if it crows or lays an egg if it does they lay brown eggs. The other one not sure about I don't own any of those.

    I looked up a pic of the Golden sebright and yup you guys are right. thanks for the input. as for my buff orp - I purchased 6 reds at TSC (tractor supply) and ended up with 4 of them looking like they are buff orps. I cant complain , the different variety of colors is nice.
