    I bought 3 Buff Orph babies at the Feed Store in April, so they are about 5 months old. I wonder if Dolly will be Doug at maturity just because tail feathers look different than other 2. I've heard no crowing at all, but only 1 of the Ameracuna's from the Feed Store group has started laying yet. So, in your opinion, is it Dolly or Doug? It is the friendliest of all the chickens, jumping up on my knee for snuggles, so even if it is Doug, as long as he is nice he will stay. So WhaDaYaThink?

    My buff orpingtons at 20 weeks have much more comb than that. I vote pullet.

    Yeah!! 3 for 3 say Dolly! I really hope so. Hubby begrudgingly agreed she could stay even if it turned out to be Doug, but I'm happy it's a hen. Now just need to get them into the Egg Laying mode. Molting started about a month ago, so even the regular layers (of which there are 3) are only giving 1 egg a day - that's total count - 1 egg 12 chickens! It's painful to buy chicken food AND a dozen eggs the same week.
