    We have 6 four-month-old chickens. I fear that our Buff Orp may be a rooster. She is much larger and has a comb and waddle that is bigger than the others. Does this breed mature faster than other ones?

    By 4 months, they will have developed saddle feathers if they are cockerels. Do you have a picture?
