    Hello all. Could someone please help me sex one of my Buff Orpingtons? I am about 95% sure he is a rooster but I would like to be positive before I go out and get another roo.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, should have mentioned earlier but (s)he was born the first week in March so a little over 4 months. Thanks for the quick reply![​IMG]

    Definitely a roo. You can tell a roo by the brighter gold plumage in the wing and tail/rump area. [​IMG]
