    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?

    Hmmm...in that case, I'm inclined to think the BO with larger, pinker comb and wattles is also a cockerel. [​IMG] 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!

    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. [​IMG]
