    ok, i have 10 buff orphs, theay are all three weeks old. one of them in particular is growing its waddle and comb MUCH faster than the other 9, also it is a more redish color thatn the others. Is this little guy a roo? is it still too early to tell? I know they said they were all pullets, but i also know they dont always get it right. How can i tell?

    The normal tell tale signs of a cockerel are the red in the comb and wattles, along with both of those growing fast, and thick legs. Post some pics so we can all see and that would definitely help us all give you a better idea as to what you have. [​IMG]
