    Hi, I bought 5 Buff orpingtons they are supposed to be hens. How old do they have to get before you can really tell what sex they are by looking at them? Mine are 4-1/2 weeks old. Thanks

    On buff orps you should be able to tell about 5-6 weeks. Post pics of them and I'm sure folks will guess for you.
