    Nice to meet you Amber, welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. How old are the birds in the photos. Age is very important in sexing birds.

    The last photo doesn't appear to be a buff orp, at all, maybe a mix or some other breed. It also looks like a cockerel. If you post at "what breed or gender is this." you'll get more opinions.

    Hi Amber and welcome to BYC - you have some nice looking chickens there. I agree that the breed / gender forum is the ideal place to get advice from the experts.

    All the best

    Hi Amber and [​IMG]! Those chickens are so cute! And I agree with drumstick diva, they all look like girls except for the last one, who seems to be a cockerel and a different breed. Thanks for joining us! [​IMG]
