    Hi all,

    We just got our first flock and are in love! Only problem is that we can't keep roosters. I want to try to sex them before I get too attached. Here's some pics:

    5-6 week old buff Orpington

    Another similar:

    If I had to guess, I'd say that #1 and #3 are roos.

    That's what I was guessing too, im gonna keep them a little longer and cross my fingers. The top buff is so friendly and I don't want to lose her ;)
