We got a couple chickens from a local feed store a few weeks ago. Included were two Buff Orpingtons. These were supposed to be pullets, but of course, there is never a guarantee. One of the Buffs seemed to be a late bloomer, losing the egg tooth a few days later than the rest, and developing wing feathers a full week later than the other Buff. We figured we had a rooster. Well now, the feathers are coming in and they are about a shade darker than our confirmed Buff. So we are wondering if there was a possibility that maybe we got a Red Sex Link or even another breed...or maybe it's just a rooster. We'll find out as it keeps growing. I was just wondering if anyone else had experience with these breeds? We are just hopefully that it's a hen because we have become rather attached to it!
