    Hello!
    I am at a loss with trying to sex my buff Orpington chicks. Everyone keeps telling me they are pullets but we only have one that looks like a pullet to me. They are 15/16 weeks old. Please help! Do I have early maturing hens or Roos? The yellow band one has started making calls in the morning that are suspicious. I can’t have Roos due to city regulations.

    :welcome :frow Where are you located? Years ago I raised Buff Orpingtons for our 4-H, you have males there. It appears from the pictures that you do have a pullet. Good luck and have fun...

    Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

    The front runner in the first pic is a cockerel. I can't make out others saddles so well... but I think I see more boys than that.

    You've just got 1 pullet, the other three are cockerels.

    My two BO pullets are that age. They do not look like your cockerels. Bummer. Such pretty birds!
