    Plus my camera doesn't take good pics. Just curious if I lucked out and really did get all hens. I can't tell them apart except for the one that's crippled from a nighttime animal attack (coop fixed - won't happen again!)

    I worry that these pics aren't good enough. I tried but between them moving constantly and my old, cruddy camera, this was about as good as I could get from over 30 tries.

    I have 6 buff orps and at 4 weeks they all looked just like your pics but at 8 weeks I could tell one was definately a boy. Good luck!

    Orps are the most difficult for me, especially splash orps. (I don't know what it is about white, but it makes it hard!) So, it's a bit early to tell (I still had some "iffy" ones until they turned 8 weeks) but I don't see anything roo'ish at this point.

    Thank you all! I will repost in a few weeks. I thought it might be a little early to tell but we're all impatient at times [​IMG]
