Roo or pullet ?
Is the dark color normal for a buff orpington
How old are they? One of the two bright golds is definitely a pullet, and the reddish is a cockerel. Is it possible that he's a New Hampshire Red rather than BO?
They are 12 weeks and not sure thats what i was worried about bc he it looks so dark
Hmmm...in that case, I'm inclined to think the BO with larger, pinker comb and wattles is also a cockerel. I've never seen a Buff with color that dark, so I guess that's what made me suspect NHR rather than BO. Pretty birds!
Do u know how to tell the sex
Basically, cockerels at 12 weeks old and younger will have large, fleshy, developed, red comb and wattles as well as pointed saddle and hackle feathers. Rounded feathers in those areas are typical of pullets.
Are there 3 chickens total? If so I see 1 pullet
