    These are two of our Buff Orpington chick that are about 5 to 6 weeks old. We are pretty sure they are males as their combs are so much more der than the other two And they both have wattles.
    Any thoughts?

    Yes from the wattles I'm leaning towards cockerels, but could you get a full body picture?

    They are quite handsome. However they are also crowing at all hours. We are going to find them a good home this weekend we hope.
