    This is my first time raising chickens. I have Buff Wyandottes I bought as pullets. They look the same, except this one started making funny noises when I gave them snacks yesterday and 'she' has darker tail feathers, (You can kinda tell in the photo) than the other one. Thoughts?

    THESE PHOTOS ARE OF THE SAME BIRD. The strange thing is that she is pretty constantly squawking. I wonder if something is wrong with her or if she is a rooster. Help?!?

    Thank you for your time and help!

    I do not know what you have but it can't be a Buff Orp with a pea-comb? Anyone else correct me if I'm wrong but, I do not see a start comb like it's supposed to have.

    Maybe sorry not familar with that breed as much as the Orps. Wyadottes from what I am told are hard to sex b/c it can go either way. Sorry [​IMG]

    Can you post profile/side shot photos of the birds? Are they hatcher or breeder stock? And how old are they?

    It's from a breeder. Is the picture profile enough or do I need to take another one? Thing is, it sure seems to be trying to crow, although a bit pathetic sounding.
