    Ok, I am pretty sure this little one is a roo, but what breed? I am hoping BO. He is about 4-5 weeks old, I got him and one more just like him at the feed store, they were in a bin labeled black australorp [​IMG]

    Those are definitely not Black Australorps! lol! They do look like Buff Orps. to me. I'm not sure about it being a cockerel though. I'm seeing a bit of red/orange there, so there is a good possibility. [​IMG]

    Cute BO chicks!! Sometimes the feed store will have multiple breeds in one tank but might not label all of them. Like our local store has labels for one breed on one side, and the other breed on the other side. So, if you don't know their set-up it is easy to miss exactly what is in which pen/tank etc. I love my BO's ... enjoy them!!! [​IMG]
