    Hi Guy's

    I have three 12-13 week old buffs in my coop along with some other, I can see the one has a slighter bigger comb an wattles than the other two, is it possible at this age to say that it is a going to become a rooster?

    Thanks for the help, if it is going to help, I will take a photo and upload it as well.

    Picture helps. My hen matured quite early and had a pretty red cob and wattles at 12 weeks. She had very round neck/saddle feathers though so I held out and she finally laid an egg at 20wks.

    I have buffs - they look like pullets to me. I have one gal who was pretty comb-y from about 8 weeks old, and she just started laying last week. She's a big girl, and matured a few weeks earlier than her 'sisters'.
