At 4 weeks old, which do you think is a more sure sign of sexing Buff Orpingtons: Comb/wattle development or amount of feathering? Here's my dilemma... I got seven St. Run Buff Orpingtons from a hardware store when they were 3 days old. I tried my best attempt at "feather sexing" their wings when I got them home. 5 of them all looked exactly the same and had the shorter stubby wings. 2 of them had very noticably longer wings with longer feathers developing. I guessed I had 5 males and 2 pullets. I marked their heads with different colors and the 2 that had the "longer wings" as 3 day old did indeed feather much faster than the other 5. Now at 4 weeks old my 2 suspected pullets are still identical. Pretty much Fully feathered with full tails and very little comb/wattle development. The other 5 are a little further behind in feathering, with much shorter stubby tails and still more scraggly looking with feathers still coming in. But their combs/wattles are throwing me way off. 1 of the 5 has a huge comb/wattle compared to the others. The other 4 still have very little comb/wattle, hardly any more noticable than my fully feathered "suspected" pullets. So I have 2 suspected pullets, tiny comb, no wattle, fully feathered with long full tails. Then I have the 5 that have the stubby short tails and are behind in feathering, but only 1 of those 5 has developed a much larger comb/wattles. I have attatched pictures of their heads, sorry I didn't get more of the feathering in there but hope I explained it well enough. 4 weeks old tomorrow. First my 2 suspected pullets: Here is the 1 of the group that has a VERY noticable larger comb/wattle: And here are the other 4 Im not sure about. They are feathered more like the one with the large comb, but still much smaller combs/wattles. What do you guys think as far as sex?
