In the Brooder
- Oct 5, 2009
Two of my pullets are buff Orpingtons. They are about 4 months old now, so no one in the coop is laying yet. The one that is definitely a hen is a normal as far as I can tell. Very healthy, her comb is reddening, her feathers are filling in and getting fluffy. The one I have a question about is also healthy, filling in nicely, very pretty, but the comb is still very pale. It's taller and the neck feathers are little darker. It stays more alert. Legs are a little thicker. I'm worried it may be a cockerel, but it has no real defining male characteristics that I can recognize. Any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure how to post pictures to the forum, but they are on my page if you would like to take a look.
